- Josip Perkovic after first democratic elections joins in intelligence services, formated Croatian intelligence service and retires. There were those who doubted in his good intentions, but nothing ever could be said against him. Jasmina Popovic, Vecernji list, 25.02.2005.
Mesic: It's not son's guilt because of his father President Mesic is not familiar with details of Perkovic case, but he doesn't think that all the time emphasized fact that son of Josip Perkovic works in his office, could in any way damage reputation of the Office. I see that is emphasized in medias all the time, but I still don't know for a single case that a son before he was born could decide about his father or his choice of job. It haven't been seen anywhere, so it would be the first time in history in Croatia. It is clear that Josip Perkovic is Croatian citizen and that State of Croatia will treat him according to laws and regulations, which means that no kind of media or political pressures could be subject to this. The Law says that Croatian citizens couldn't be hand over just like that and that all cases as this one, should go to Croatian judicature and let them to Croatian courts, gave a comment President Mesic. Jasmina Popovic, Vecernji list, 29.10.2005
-So we were driving like that for years, and was without passport for 15 years, explains Mesic, but avoids to talk, during those periodical visiting to police for his rejection note for passport, whether he talked with people who received him there and whether after those meetings in registers of Service for national security has left any notes about his chats with awake guardians of Yugoslav constitutional order, which was just going to hell. But, if Mesic really said something to agents and if they put that in record, it is absolutely insane to talk about his spy work for comunist intelligence services and really malicious and wrong to name Mesic as informer of Udba, what Jovic (Josip note Z.P.) and his likeminded persons didn't stop doing till today. Ivica Djikic, The Homeland Twist, pages 197/198.
- So, I am convinced that police records, which were published by Slobodna Dalmacija authentic, and Mesic had to tell me about those contacts with Service of state security, because we were in good relations and enough close friends, said Budak. The Homeland Twist, page 200.
- National medias placed in Zagreb are those in which journalists work according to professional standards, without political interference. What worries me is the fact that last several months happened several replacement of chief editors. In some cases the replacement of chief editor led to that on some other way, less balanced, are news followed. It would be good if the editors are replaced to make that media better, and not to make it more liable to political and financial influences. But, the situation in general in print medias is rather good.
The debate on how to reconcile the work of the secret services with an effective protection of fundamental human rights and journalistic freedom has been in the spotlight during most of the reporting period. Although the Croatian Journalists’ Association expressed its satisfaction at the conclusions of Parliamentary Committees who investigated in March cases where the Counter Intelligence Agency (POA) had allegedly violated the human rights of journalists, some media commentators concluded that the investigations did not result in any concrete proposal for a change of the rulebook of POA or the Law on Security Services.
MUNICIPAL COURT IN ZAGREB Legal matter: PROSECUTOR: PERATOVIC ZELJKO, from Zagreb, III Pile 25 Represented by: attorney Irena Radic DEFENDANT: VJESNIK P Ltd., Zagreb, Slavonska avenija 4 COMPLAINT Because returning employee on job and payment of lost salary I The prosecutor is employee of the defendant on undetermined time on employment position journalist-senior associate IV, and which labour relation is regulated by Work contract on undetermined time since 18.02.2002. year. On the day 04.08.2005. the defendant brought Resolution of irregular dismissal of Work contract, by which for the prosecutor is canceled Work contract because of serious violation of working duty for reason because on the day 22.07.2005., as the author, have published a big interview with Pavle Gazi in public paper «Feral Tribune», and he didn't ask for consent of his employer. Therefore, the defendant consider that the prosecutor in that way commited specialy serious violation of working duty, by which is disrupted relation of confidence of employer and worker and because of such act of the prosecutor continuation of working relation is not possible. Furthermore, the defendant in explanation of Resolution of irregular dismissal of Work contract quote that the prosecutor in 2002. was warned for not fulfilling his obligations in accordance with regulations in Book of working regulations, because, namely he was fulfilling his works in unsatisfactory way by range and quality. The prosecutor in legal term on day 29.08.2005. made appeal on subject resolution. EVIDENCE: expected recognition from the defendant, the Work contract of the prosecutor since 18.02.2002., copy of the defendant's Resolution of irregular dismissal of Work contract since 04.08.2005., copy of the prosecutor's objection since 29.08.2005., if necessary other evidences II After enclosed objection, the prosecutor received a resolution of employer-defendant, by which the defendant determine that there is no basis for changing Resolution of irregular dismissal from 04.08.2005. because the prosecutor violated rule article 5 of Work contract and article 56. section 1. point 16. of Book of working regulations. Article 56. section 1. point 16. of Book of working regulations says: «that worker must esteem article 92. of Law of work (legal prohibition of match), and section 2. of the same article says: «because of disregard of this working duty the employer can cancel Work contract, and if it is especially hard violation by which the process of work is obstructed, and in that or another way, cause material damage or obstruct reputation of papers Vjesnik, an irregular dismissal of Work contract can be given.» In accordance with previously quoted regulation of Book of working regulations comes that violation made by prosecutor is no such hard violation of working duty which would justified irregular dismissal, so this Resolution of irregular dismissal to prosecutor illegal. Furthermore, the prosecutor quote that he thinks that by publishing of subject interview in public papers «Feral Tribune» didn't make any material damage to the defendant, or his reputation obstructed or in any other way obstructed the working process, so the conditions from article 56. section 2. of Book of working regulations for giving irregular dismissal of Work contract to the prosecutor are not fulfilled. Also th edefendant in explanation of Resolution of irregular dismissal of Work contract and in answer on objection of the prosecutor didn't explain in any way subject resolution, although he referes on rules of Book of working regulations which clearly and briefly found reasons for making Resolution of irregular dismissal of Work contract. Namely, by article 114. of Law of work the parties can irregularly dismiss Work contract: «if because of especially hard working violation or because of some other especially relevant fact, considering all conditions and interests of both contract parties, the continuation is not possible.» Considering that article 56. section 2. of Book of working regulations clearly points out reasons for irregular dismissal of Work contract, the prosecutor claims that the same are not fulfilled and that this Resolution of irregular dismissal illegal, because it is not in accordance with demands from Book of working regulations, which is used in making this very Resolution of irregular dismissal. In favor of this claim that subject Resolution is illegal, emphasized is that is well-known that such offence done by journalists who work at defendant, don't have irregular dismissal of Work contract as a result. Namely, in 2003. the journalist of defendant, Marijana Matkovic and journalist Adriano Milovan, cooperated with other medias and because of that cooperation punished with destimulation of salary in amount of 1.000,00 kunas, although at that time was on rule also subject Book of working regulations and article 56. section 1. point 16 and 2 of the same one. It is obvious that the defendant by making disputable Regulation of irregular dismissal of Work contract towards the prosecutor didn't act in the same way towards other employees, because for such violation only to him is irregularly dismissed Work contract. The prosecutor also wasn't getting his salary since the day of termination of working relation, and that is 16.08.2005. when the prosecutor got Resolution of irregular dismissal of Work contract from the defendant. EVIDENCE: expected recognition of the defendant, the Book of working regulations of the defendant, Work contract of the prosecutor, interrogation of the prosecutor, interrogation of witness Marijana Matkovic and Adriano Milovan, both on address of the defendant, by need financial expert evaluation, by need others evidences III The prosecutor quotes that disputable interview which he published in public papers «Feral Tribune» and whic on the day 22.07.2005. and publicly published in mentioned public papers, made out of his working time, and that he in accordance with regulations of Work contract, on the day 11.07.2005. at 14:54 hours handed over to the chief editor Andrea Latinovic, who without any explanation disallowed its publishing, and for which direct cognitions has editor Nada Dmitrovic. On the day 12.07.2005. the prosecutor talked with assisstant of the director, dr. Goran Popovic about diputable text, and he was ready to make corrections in that text, and all in accordance with the defendant's general editor approach, who informed him that he would talk to the chief editor of the defendant, Andrea Latinovic, and that he would be informed about everything in time. Considering that he didn't get any oral or written explanation, the prosecutor led by journalist principals of in time and truthful informing of public decided to publish the interview in public papers «Feral Tribune» on his own expense. The prosecutor is a journalist whose texts were awarded by international journalist associations (The award of Reporters without borders of Austria, by award Press Freedom Award 2003.) because of in time and truthful informing of public, and his decision to publish this text without approval of the defendant, was only made led by journalist principle of in time and truthful informing of public. On quotes in Resolution of irregular dismissal of Work contract since 04.08.2005. that the prosecutor even in 2002. was warned that he didn't fulfill his obligatios in accordance with rules of Book of working regulations, because he supposedlly unsatisfactory was doing his job by range and quality, the prosecutor says that subject quotes are not accurate, and in favour of that he quotes the fact that at that time he was by chief editor Kresimir Fijacko and his deputy, Miroslav Lezaja and executive director, Zlatko Herljevic, suggested for award of Croatian journalist association fir investigative journalism, and what he wouldn't be for sure so if the prosecutor worked his job in unsatisfactory way by range and quality. EVIDENCE: interrogation of the prosecutor, interrogation of witness Nada Dmitrovic, Goran Popovic, both on the address of the defendant, by need other evidences IV Considering that the defendant refuses to take the prosecutor back to work and pay him off his lost salaries, the prosecutor suggests that court give v e r d i c t 1.

Henrettelse av den ortodokse presten Var det flere som fortalte deg om det som skjedde i Lora? - En kveld på forsommeren kom Pasalic til militærleier sint fordi en ortodoks prest ble drept på fengselet. Mannen ble torturert hver dag og Tvrtko var spesielt sint fordi presten ble drept av hans sjåfør med spark i hodet. Han sa det da jeg var tilstede sammen med Barisic og Paic inne i garasjen til MP Sibenik. Mario spillte for meg i ettertid en kassett der han gjorde opptak av Livaja. På kassetten kan man helt tydelig høre at noen fra ”C” blokken ble drept og at ”sammen med de endte Goreta, et sted på Klis”.

Zaak-Gotovina blijft Kroatië achtervolgen Een aanslag mer een briefbom en conflicten met het Joegoslavië-tribunaal. Kroatië komt niet toe aan her oplossen van de echte problemen. Door onze correspondent TIJN SADÉE BOEDAPEST/ZAGREB, 21 SEPT. Een brute actie vanuit her criminele milieu. Dat is de voorlopige conclusie die de Kroatische regering trekt na de aanslag met een bombrief, maandag, op de Britse ambassade in de Kroatische hoolfdstad Zagreb. De brief met efplosieven krwarn tot ontploffing in de postkamer van de ambassade waarbij een mederwerker licht werd verwond. Na een dag van wild speculeren, waarbij zelf werd gedacht aan een actie van internationale terorreurnetwerken, kwam gisteren de Kroatische politie met de dader op de proppen: man die gewond werd had zélf de briefbom binnen gesmokkeld. En daar moet men het voorlopig mee doen. Al blijft het vermoeden dat de dader opereerde in opdracht van „groepringen die Krotië's ambities om EU-Lid te worden willen frustreren,“ zoals de Kroatische premier Ivo Sanader het uitdrukte. Welke „groeperingen“ worden bedoeld weet elke Kroaat: de criminele netwerken rondom de voortvluchtige generaal Ante Gotovina die door het Joegoslavië-tribunaal wordt verdacht van oorlogsmisdaden. In de Kroatische media is de Britse regering de laatste tijd scherp gehekeld wegens haar – volgens de Kroaten – zeer harde opstelling jegens Kroatië. Volgens de Protten kan van een EU-lidmatschap van Kroatië geen sprake zijn zolang het land niet blijk geeft volop samen te werken met het Joegoslavië-tribunaal; die samenwerking laat volgens de Britte te wensen over, Weliswaar vinden alle EU-lidstaten dat, maar de Britse formuleringen zijn dermate hard dat ze de Kroatische zaak „grote schade“ hebben toegebracht. Dat Gotovina nog steeds niet aan het tribunaal is uitgeleverd kwam Kroatië in maart al dour te staan, toen Brussel verdere onderhandelingen over toetreding een halt toeriep. „Gotovina is niet in Kroatië, we kunnen hem niet vinden,“ blijft premier Sanader herhalen. Hij vindt echter weinig begrip in Brussel. Zeker na de nieuwste aantijgingen van Carla Del Ponte, hoofdaanklager van het Joegoslavië-tribunal, die de Kroatische katholieke kerk ervan verdenkt Gotovina te beschermen.
Door de zaak-Gotovina komt Kroatië niet toe aan het oplossen van de andere poeblemen, zegt Andrea Feldman, hoofdt van het Open Society Institute (OSI) dat ijvert voor democratisering van Kroatië. „Sanader zou zijn handen vol moeten hebben met het hervormen van de staatsinstellingen, zoals politie en justitie,“ zegt Feldman. In het jongste OSI-rapport wordt de Kroatische rechtspraak gehekeld wegens de trage werking en onvoldoende transparantie. Ook moeten nog tal van economische hervormingen worden doorgevoerd. Feldman: „Sanader vecht aan twee fronten tegelijk. Hij moet Europa overtuigen van zijn beste bedoelingen en tegelijk in Kroatië grote schoonmaak houden. Want de stank in de stallen van de Kroatische politiek is onverdragelijk.“ De bomaanslag drukt Sanader met de neus op de feiten, zegt journalist Zeljko Peratovic die onderzoek doet naar de netwerken rond Gotovina. „De briefbom is een plaagstootje uit de koker van Gotovina-aanhangers.“ Peratovic schrijft over de banden die regering en leger onderhouden met de maffia in Kroatië en hamert er al jaren op dat Gotovina bescherming gebiet van het leger. Peratovic werd, na meermalen met de dood te zijn bedreigd, vorige maand ontslagen door zijn werkgever, de krant Vjesnik. „Ik word omringd door lafaards,“ zegt hij. „Jedereen weet dat het eenvoudig is om Gotovina op te sporen. Er is alleen niemand die het lef heeft.“ Toch vindt Feldman dat Sanader steun van de EU verdient in zijn strijd voor hervormingen. „Toetreding is het enige pressiemiddel dat helpt. Brussel moet, los van de zaak-Gotovina, Kroatië een startdatum voor onderhandelingen geven. Anders ontspoort dit land.“

Sibenik (2/17/02 11:16 am) Reply UROKU-BARISICU
I see that you started with politics. High and that little smaller. Our shame. For those who don't know, I must say. -grandfather of Mario Barisic was Ustasha from village Rupa: well known for his Croationalism and love for his country. He was killed by partisans (comunistic) in way that he put him in ropes and through the whole village dragged like that with horses until he died. Then a politic commessary with a knife on a gun M48 stabbed him in chest and second time in neck. Ours would say- abandu. That's how died one Croat from Rupe who adored Croatia. Then a young commessary, still alive today, but old, proudly sits in SDP in Sibenik. By the way, when his corps was pushed in a puddle of water and mud ba two partisan knights, he said: «Ustasha trash, this is going to happen with your children and all Ustasha descendants». A sorrow to be bigger, with him was one Serb by surname Tisma (from Knin somewhere) who said: «You fool, where were you born? – you are going to kill all your people». And he answered: «For Yugoslavia, my friend, for Yugoslavia and comunis party». -Super. MARIO BARISIC ( grandchild of murdered country-lover) is a member of (SDP- Croatian Socialdemocrats Party) party since 1995. Passionate pleader of justice and legal country. «Evidences» about war crimes he gives to Ivica Racan and Marin Jurjevic and asks for punishmet of «criminals». By the way, Mario answers on two questions: -With whom you met before going in Kijevo as a policeman? – What was the name of you captain of KOS in Yugoslav army? -Just to know, even if you don't answer again. You stinky brat. You chase everybody around yourself who thinks a bit as Croat. Why do you lie for your wounding? I watch you a lot. You greet me sometimes, I do the same to you. But you are so disgusting to me that I don't hate you, but despise you. Unfortunatelly, this people don't know much about you, but I will tell them. I know you and your family, and father and mother and brother and relatives, your wife and her relatives. I know all about you, more then you do. Who says that you should be killed is stinky and stupid animal. I am even against the thought of it, because Croats shouldn't live through destiny of their ancestors, even if they are betrayers. You sholuld be presented to this people and tell them WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT IS YOUR TASK, and I know that.

Did Mario Barisic gave tetimony in vain?
Projection of documentary Lora – testimonies of Nenad Puhovski and Pero Jurisin, again put in focus of public interest Mario Barisic, former military policeman from Sibenik, who first thgough institutions of system, then in medias and then in court gave testimony about war crimes and criminal acts on which worked Militaty police and Safety-informative service in MORH in Dalmatia, during war years. Praising Mario's honesty and bravery, Slobodan Snajder asked me concernedly in his mail: -And why Barisic in Split court didn't blame somebody else of eight accused, when out of all is clear that they were torturers in «Lora»? I answered that Mario Barisic didn't want to lie. He didn't see that accused from Lora torture and kill. He saw clues of a crime after it were commited: the walls of block C covered in blood, a human ear on the floor in toilette; he heared stories about crimes from other military policemen. To prevent repeating of such things, he informed about his knowledge his superiors all to President Franjo Tudjman. After his testimony in Tudjman's office, there was held a meeting of closest state top, on which deceased Minister of defense, Gojko Susak, said that Barisic should be eliminated. When a part of stenogram from that meeting appeared in public, one of the members of meeting, Ivan Jarnjak, in 1993. Minister of police, said that Susak didn't mean to kill when he said eliminate. Why that stenogram wasn't mention in documentary Lora-testimonies, it is not clear to me, particularly considering the fact that scenarist of Lora, Pero Jurisin quoted most of stenogram in his text in Nedjeljna Dalmacija and that he for sure have the stenogram of conversation of Tudjman, Susak, Jarnjak and others about Mario Barisic. When spokesman of President's Office, Danijela Barisic in 2001. confirmed that stenogram brought from Office of state attorney, I asked from at that time archivar of President Stjepan Mesic, Zeljko Bagic, to let me insight in that contorverse conversation. Bagic was convincing me that he gave the stenogram to Zeljko Zganjer, at that time County state attorney in Sibenik (today chief of USKOK) and to Mladen Bajic, present Main attorney of Croatia, Mladen Bajic, and at that time County state attorney in Split, and that he had to see what he would do about knowledge from that evidence. The key evidence which confirms that Mario Barisic informed Tudjman about criminal and crimes in MORH stayed till today unavailable for wide public. Namely it was used in process Lora, but had a mark of secret on it, so even Barisic as witness in process, even after official written demand to State attorney's office, couldn't get. Destiny of Mario Barisic in many ways is similar to Levar's. After the murder of Milan Levar in Gospic, County state attorney from Sibenik, Zeljko Zganjer, gave him a police protection, which after two years, disapointed, Mario cancelled himself. Policemen from protection betrayed him to his enemies, and he got informations that certain groups connected with Levar's murder, but also hiding of Ante Gotovina, prepared his death. Different from Levar, he received trial for some crimes about which he gave testimony, but he didn't receive to see that those he held responsible were accused – those who organized the crimes, made it possible, made benefit out of it... On these pages we will to try to give review of Mario's search for the truth and justice through institutions, medias, courts. After Levar's death, state should give him full protection and seriously investigate all his quotation, and not to try to manipulate with his testimony in Lora case, so even Slobodan Snajder could get an impression that Barisic protects direct commiters of war crimes. If Mario give up for good his hard expedition, it will not be his fault...
