Croatian President awarded Mijo Jelic, indicted for War Crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina

On Tuesday evening, Croatian President Zoran Milanovic hosted a reception for war commanders at the Knin Fortress and retired generals and four Croatian Defense Council Guards Brigades, Vijesti.ba news portal reports.

Among the awarded was Zlatan Mijo Jelic, who was indicted by the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2015 for war crimes that are part of a joint criminal enterprise for which the Hague Tribunal handed down final verdicts against Prlic and others.

Zlatan Mijo Jelic, abusing his dual citizenship, fled BiH. This information provoked numerous negative reactions in Bosnia and Herzegovina and will probably further complicate our country’s relations with Croatia.
