A day before their appeals hearing, people were praying for Generals Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac in the local church in Pakostani, the town where Gotovina’s family resides. The two contested their prison terms of 24 and 18 years respectively before the Appeals Chamber at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) on 14 May.

It’s not that the Croats didn’t expect the ICTY to convict Generals Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac. They knew very well that operation Storm in 1995 was a violent military operation, in which Serbian civilians weren’t spared. Justly so, according to most of them, because a couple of years earlier the Serbs had expelled most Croats from the Krajina region.

The arrest on December 8 in Spain of Croatian General Ante Gotovina, one of the main suspects wanted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), sparked a wave of protests all over Croatia. Right wing leader Anto Djapic said that the arrest of Gotovina was a difficult day for Croatia, for all Croatian war veterans and for all those who respect Gotovina as a national hero. However, the Prime Minister and the Arch-Bishop of Makarska, south of Split, called upon citizens to try and understand why this moment was good for their country.

The trial of former Croatian general Ante Gotovina at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has concluded amid allegations of underhand tactics by the prosecution. Against the rules of a criminal trial, the prosecution brought new arguments in the closing statement.

Gotovina (54) has been on trial at the ICTY since March 2008. He is charged with organising a campaign of murder and plundering which had driven up to 200,000 ethnic Serbs from the Krajina region of Croatia in 1995.
