UN court convicts 2 Croat generals, 1 acquitted
The Hague: A UN court has convicted a key wartime Croatian commander, Gen. Ante Gotovina, of committing atrocities in a campaign of shelling, murder and persecution aimed at driving Serbs out of Croatia`s Krajina border region in 1995.
Gotovina was sentenced to 24 years in prison. The court also convicted a second general, Mladen Markac, and sentenced him to 18 years, but cleared a third, Ivan Cermak, of all charges and ordered him released.
The Yugoslav war crimes tribunal judgment Friday was also a damning verdict on Croatia`s then-president, Franjo Tudjman. It said he led a "joint criminal enterprise" to repopulate the Krajina region with Croats after driving out Serbs. Tudjman died in 1999 while under investigation by the tribunal.
