Bad Day for Ninoslav Pavić (Ninoslav Pavic)

Yesterday morning unknown perpetrator had planted and activated explosive device under Mercedes M2 owned by Ninoslav Pavić (Ninoslav Pavic), one of Croatia's best known media tycoons. The explosion has wrecked the car and damaged Pavic's house but, thankfully, nobody is hurt.

This incident only shows the sad state of public safety within Croatia. It is too early to speculate about possible motives and perpetrators, but, in my humble opinion, the intention of the bombers was to show that nobody is untouchable in today's Croatia, not even a media tycoon who was very close both to Tudjman's and Račan's (Racan's) governments. The bombing follows a campaign of threats against journalists who work in Pavic's newspapers and magazines.
