Croatian war criminal received five and a half years in prison

Tomislav Mercep, one of the main Croatian neo-Nazis during the collapse of the SFRY and a prominent war criminal, was convicted by a Croatian court of five and a half years in prison for war crimes against civil Serbs. The judge announced the number in 43 killed at the hands of Merchep and his subordinates.

Meanwhile, Mercep and a group of his thugs, who were called the special squad “Autumn Rains” of the Croatian Ministry of the Interior, only in 1991, several hundred civilian Serbs and prisoners of war were killed. In the camps in Pakračka-Poliana and Zagreb near 300 people, in Gospic and Karlobag 123 people, in Vukovar around 80 people.

Former subordinates passed the boss with giblets, describing in detail how they cut people. Mercepa Deputy Miro Bayramovich gave the following testimony at the end of 1990.

“I am directly responsible for killing an 86 man,” Bayramovich repented. - I go to bed in the evening with this and wake up with it in the morning if I can fall asleep. It was with this hand that I killed a 72 man, among them nine women. For us, there was no difference: all the Serbs were our enemies. The most difficult thing is to kill the first person and set fire to the first house, then everything follows a pattern. We were killed by bullets in the forehead, because we did not have time. We had an order from the command: to reduce the number of Serbs in Gospic. Then I did not feel that the Serbs - people just like us, did not feel that they, too, have fathers, brothers, children. But I did not kill the children, because then I could not look into the face of my daughter. ”

      Humane court

      This is just a mockery of justice, and indeed of the concept of elementary justice. However, I am not surprised. This is exactly what should be expected from Europeans. The most humane of tolerasts.

        Where is the link to the original article? I do not believe that killing 43 people gives 5,5 years.

    What a humane court they have, however. Here only life-giving euthanasia can be a sentence. Better is the loop.

    Given the time in the pre-trial detention center, he was not released in the courtroom by his case? Judging by Google, the trial began in 2011. So that's it. Long live the Croatian court! The most humane court in the world!

    Nevertheless, at some points I support the policy of the Israeli Mossad! For such crimes there should be no statute of limitations, and sentences should be imposed in a warring country, in this case, in Serbia! And they must also be fulfilled in this country! Or on the spot!

    Five years and a camera with all the amenities and a view of the Adriatic Sea, he will obviously receive from the punishing hand of European "justice". According to such arithmetic / the ratio of victims to the term of punishment / Chikatilo should have received less than a year and been released with a clear conscience.

    I go to bed in the evening with this and in the morning I wake up with this if I can fall asleep. With this hand I killed 72 people, among them nine women.

    All this blood will fall on the whole Croatian people. Nothing good awaits them. Judges, apparently, hate their people in much the same way as our liberals. Having punished the deserts of the maniac, they thereby, at least some apology would bring the victims. And so, they signed up and became killers. Resentment by a court decision from the people of this country can not be expected. And, therefore, they are all killers. All.

      By the way, there was just indignation. Media reports flooded with comments that the verdict was "an example of the persecution of Croats in the worst communist tradition."
