One Court Down…

Carla del Ponte, chief ICTY prosecutor responsible for so many Croatian girls named Karla having same problems as young Europeans named Adolf had in 1950s, is going to be booted out of Rwanda War Crimes Tribunal, while keeping her job at ICTY. Lobbying effort by Rwandan government managed to produced desired results – del Ponte is out and current rulers of that small African country probably wouldn't have to worry about their boys answering for possible atrocities done while stopping 1994 genocide.

Needless to say, this news would be great encouragement for Croatian right-wingers who still can't reconcile with the idea of victorious army being put to same judicial standards as defeated agressors. There are already calls for Croatian government to start following Rwandan example.
