The County Office of Chief State Prosecutor in the city of Osijek has dismissed the war crimes charges which were pressed against Croatian Serb leader Vojislav Stanimirovic by journalist Karolina Vidovic Kristo and historian Josip Jurcevic.
The office stated on Thursday that the claim made by the two plaintiffs in 2013 could not be substantiated by evidence.
The documents filed with Vidovic Kristo and Jurcevic included a description of war atrocities committed against Croatian police officers in Borovo Selo on 2 May 1991 and they also claimed that Stanimirovic, the Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS) president, had been engaged in the torture of 12 Croatian police officers.
They also insist that he had been an accomplice in war crimes in Lovas and other eastern Croatian areas in 1991.
The SDSS leader Stanimirovic said on several occasions that he had been accused by Croatian war veterans associations of war crimes on several occasions but that every time the judicial authorities had cleared him of such allegations.
