Croatia: Joint Letter by EFJ-SEEMO-Croatian Assoc. of Journalist's Concerning Dusan Miljus

The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), the

Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), an affiliate of the

International Press Institute (IPI) and the Croatian Journalists’ Association

(HND) express their joint concern over the fact that three years after the

brutal beating of the Croatian journalist, Dusan Miljus, the police have been

unable to find the perpetrators or those who ordered the attack.


In addition, the circumstances surrounding the 2008

assassination of high-profile Croatian journalist and editor of the weekly Nacional, Ivo Pukanic, have not been completely clarified. While those who planted the

bomb which killed Pukanic and Niko Franjic, marketing manager of Nacional,

were indicted, the masterminds behind

their assassination were never found.
