Domestic Affair

ICTY prosecutors have brought war crimes indictment against Mirko Norac, former Croatian Army general. He is indicted for atrocities committed during Croatian Army and police offensive against Serb forces in Medak Pocket in 1993.

Unlike in previous similar occasions, this indictment is not likely to cause any major problems for Croatian government. First of all, ICTY prosecutors have recommended that the trial be held in Croatia.

Second, it is unlikely that Norac could evade the trial, because he is currently in prison, serving 12 years sentence for the war crimes committed against Serb civilians in Gospić 1991.
