Well,

at least they moved 1 step forward.

After all, if there is not negotiation, there is no progress.

I am glad I live in Canada. Oh my god, people down there are best recipe for headache.

If Croatia lets Glavas get off again then I'd have thought there's a case to be made for having the ICTY step in, though I wonder how that would square with the deadline for closing down. I don't know whether the ICTY is in fact able to do what the ICC is supposed to do, ie act where there is a failure to act by national courts. M and K are fugitives and anyway indicted by the ICTY itself but Glavas is presumably the responsibility of the Croatian judicial system.

It's always different (and harder) when you were directly involved it the things that happened. I hope Glavaš gets what he deserves.

But Mesić had meetings with the Croatian Serbs before, just not with this organization, there are many different organization which represent the Serbs in Croatia. So the title could be misleading.

Marin, thanks for the clarification re: the Croatian Serbs and Mesic.
