Interior ministry says Seselj will be denied entry into Croatia

Should Serb Radical Party leader Vojislav Seselj arrive at the Croatian border, he will be banned from entering Croatia pursuant to the Law on Foreigners, the Croatian Interior Ministry reported on Thursday.

A source at the ministry said that a notice has been sent to all border crossings to deny Seselj entry to Croatia pursuant to the law.

After the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) acquitted Seselj of war crimes earlier in the day, he hinted that he might come to Croatia. Immediately after the verdict was handed down, Seselj tweeted a message to Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic: "My dear Kolinda, get ready, I am coming to you soon, for an official visit!"

In an informal discussion with reporters in Vukovar, Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic said, "Let him come and we will arrest him."
