"Under [the Law on Housing Relations], tenancy rights were terminated if the right holder was absent from the apartment for longer than six months “without a justified reason.” Although most of the displaced fled in the face of a real threat to their safety, Croatian courts rejected arguments that this justified any absence of more than six months."

The Croatian courts appear to be worse than Dickensian in grinding the faces of those who have already suffered enough.
