The majority of the 28 war crime trials that took place in Croatia in 2007 met standards of fairness, according to a February 4 report by four Croatian NGOs: the Centre for Peace and Human Rights, the Centre for Dealing with the Past, the Civil Committee on Human Rights and the Croatian Helsinki Committee for Human Rights. These organizations founded a monitoring team that has been following all war crime trials in this country since 2005.
