A debate on the prosecution is underway in the CROATIAN Parliament, which the representatives of the right-wing parties used for a brutal attack on the Serb community in Croatia and on the former president of the SDSS, and today the president of the general assembly Vojislav Stanimirovic.
After the appearance of the president of the Homeland Movement, Ivan Penava, the current mayor of Vukovar, who called for the persecution of Serbs, the president of the SDSS, Milorad Pupovac, reacted.
-If the SDSS club talked about the suffering of Serbs in Croatia from 1991-1995. years in the way that Penava says we would be constantly in a verbal war and interstate relations would be worse than they are. Regardless of the fact that ethnic cleansing of Serbs was carried out in the Republic of Croatia, both in cities outside the war zones, and those who were under UN protection, all the way to operations “Flash” and “Storm”. Who answered ?! Who was responsible for the persecution of hundreds of thousands of people ?! Who was responsible for the destruction of several tens of thousands of houses that will never be rebuilt, as well as the villages ?! Including the villages of the Požega valley, out of 25 villages, 24 were destroyed in December 1991 !? Who was responsible for the monuments and the demolition of the monuments on Petrova Gora, on Jadovna in Srb !? Who answered !? Now the chase will start, but your colleague Penava will not be attacked by anyone, and I am just telling the other side of the story. You will continue to persecute the remaining Serbs in Croatia. Nobody was responsible for Grubori, nor for Varivode, nor for Gosic, nor for Lika, nor for Banija … What should I do here now !? Now I am ashamed to mention this in connection with you and your speech. If every now and then people come who will declare others war criminals, such as Doctor Stanimirović, where the prosecution has twice established that he is not guilty, and we still have a new defamation campaign against him today, for example ?! What will the state prosecutor’s office do? He won’t do anything! Because those people who do that are protected by media freedoms and political rights. What effect does that have on Serbs in Croatia and on Serb-Croatian relations? Devastating. I do not want Serbs to be held hostage to crimes they did not commit.
The president of the SDSS stated that certain deputies in the Parliament spread hate speech protected behind the parliamentary immunities.
Representatives of the right-wing parties reacted to the statement of the president of the SDSS, Pupovac, who demanded that Pupovac apologize for what the Serbs did to Croatia.
In response to General Sacic’s protest against his speech, Pupovac said that he “got away” with his release in the “Grubori” case, where he was indicted.
