Croatia: Cranking up Demographic Panic

The demographic panic that the Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic has on Tuesday 17 April 2018 injected with a new, curious and cranked up alarmist notch in the coastal town on Sibenik leaves a sour taste of the absurd, of hollow political point-scoring, and I certainly cannot see the logic nor much justification for it; […]

Anti-Croat Efraim Zuroff Rampage

  Upon her current visit to Argentine Croatian president Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic said that many Croats had found their freedom” in Argentina after World War II, fleeing persecution in Communist Yugoslavia, adding that she felt proud of all the generations of Croats who came to the Latin American country. Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic also said earlier this […]

Croatia: Taste Of Marx’s Theory Of Socialism In President’s Marginalisation

Stating her official presidential view about the people who protested against the arrival of Serbia’s president Aleksandar Vucic in Croatia, many of who were Croatia’s Homeland War veterans and war widows, Croatia’s president Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic said: “…We cannot permit individuals from the margins of the political spectrum or from the margins of any type […]

Croatia: Give Yourself A Tattoo With A Razor Blade Without Anesthetics

Metaphorically speaking, “give yourself a tattoo with a razor blade without anesthetics” is the kind of feeling many people in Croatia are expressing as an intended impact of their president’s current invitation to Serbia’s president for a state visit. A very significant number of Croatian people are outraged at President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic’s invitation to […]

Outrageous UN-Court Rape Of Croatian Historical Truth And Global Common Sense

There are good reasons why death sentences have in most countries been abolished – one is that innocence of crimes can escape even those judges that enjoy the reputation of impeccable competence in judging evidence before the courts. Do not for one moment even consider let alone believe that Croatian General Slobodan Praljak was a […]

Whistleblowers And The Unravelling Corruption In Croatia

  Fear of reprisals for reporting wrongdoing, whistleblowing on corruption or possible corruption, breaches of legislative regulations etc. is a real concern when fighting corruption and this fear is very pronounced in Croatia. Croatia (like all former Yugoslavia member states) is a country riddled with entrenched corruption stemming from the communist public service and administration […]

Croatia – Persistent Grief For Victims Is A Call For Justice

Croatia’s Homeland War consequences are still unsettling – a lot.

Let them eat cake…or…chocolate

  The background to this article is related to the unacceptable and utterly disappointing practices in the handling of complaints that arrive at the Office of the President of Croatia. It is to be noted that due process in Complaints handling by a public office is taken seriously in a developed democracy, not in Croatia […]

Croatia: Democracy (?) And Fear Of Reprisals Culture

One of the crucial fundamentals for a well-functioning democracy lies in tight and transparent Complaints mechanisms across the board; for government, public and private business bodies operating in the state alike. This fact is indisputable in Western democracies and is guarded by state authorities with proverbial iron-fists. Freedom from harassment, reprisals and retaliation resulting from […]

Croatia: Lustration To Stop Sinking Deeper Into Mediocrity

  I have lost count of the number of times General Zeljko Glasnovic, Member of Croatian Parliament for the Diaspora, has emphasised and warned in his public and parliamentary appearances that the Croatian diaspora is purposefully excluded from Croatian social, economic and political life and development…and that this must be rectified in order for Croatia […]

Do Not Touch The HOS Flag

  The trend in current, recent events in Croatia to do with HOS (Croatian Defence Forces) flag and symbols that it carried and carries, particularly the salutation “For Home Ready” (Za Dom Spremni) call for a somewhat amplified set of observations, which point in the direction of brazen attempts to insult and degrade the very […]
