The President of the Croatian Conference of Bishops Commented on the Sentencing of the Croatian Six from Bosnia and Herzegovina
"The Hague sentencing of the Croatian Six from Bosnia and Herzegovina does not take the historical facts into account. There are no historical data or reasons for a joint criminal enterprise. This verdict is not just and does not contribute to reconciliation! Let this verdict make Croatian politicians aware that the Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina must not be left alone but need help to exist and remain there. In this situation of general distress, I am interested in how to help the nation so that it does not become lost," said Archbishop Puljić in an interview for Croatian Catholic Radio (HKR).
