HADZIC WORE UNIFORM FOR REASONS OF HYGIENE

In Goran Hadzic’s opinion, his war-time statements didn’t ‘incite violence and reprisals’. He nevertheless still claims he would call for the Croats with ‘blood on their hands’ to be put on trial. He would in fact question their very right to be called humans at all. Did Hadzic wear uniform for reasons of hygiene or for military reasons?

PRIORITIES SET BY HADZIC’S GOVERNMENT

The prosecution has suggested that as far as the investigation bodies in the Serb Autonomous Region of Slavonia, Baranja and Western Srem were concerned, the priority was to prosecute crimes against Serbs, rather than those involving non-Serb victims. The prosecution showed 29 documents from the Beli Manastir court, in order to prove that only 13 judgments were rendered in cases involving Serb perpetrators. The rest of the cases, 16 in all, never proceeded beyond indictment

HADZIC: POLITICAL UNTRUTHS ARE NOT LIES

Former Serb political leader in Croatia Goran Hadzic contends that his statements were ‘statements made by a politician’; their purpose was to ‘increase [his] consequence’. ‘To exaggerate a situation or to misrepresent it’, Hadzic argued, ‘isn’t a lie’. According to the prosecution, Hadzic’s statements ‘incited violence and spread hatred’

SERB MAJORITY ACHIEVED BY MAKING NON-SERBS LEAVE AND SETTLING SERBS

In the cross-examination of Goran Hadzic, the prosecutor put it to him that his government implemented a policy designed to achieve a Serb majority in Eastern Slavonia: non-Serbs were made to leave the area and Serbs from Western Slavonia came in to replace them. Hadzic argues that the JNA was the sole culprit for the expulsions

HADZIC’S ‘POLITICAL GAMES’

Former prime minister of the Serb Autonomous Region of Eastern Slavonia and president of the Republic of Serbian Krajina maintains that he ‘condemned every instance of injustice and all crimes’ he was aware of. Hadzic denied that he threatened Croats and called for their expulsion in his public appearances. As he explained, those were his ‘political games’ intended to foment conflict between ‘peaceful and aggressive Croats’

DID PRIME MINISTER HADZIC HAVE ‘MINIMAL’ OR ‘SUBSTANTIAL’ POWERS?

The prosecution has noted Goran Hadzic’s efforts to ‘minimize’ his role as the prime minister of the Serb Autonomous Region Eastern Slavonia and his ability to influence the government decisions. Hadzic renounced ‘idle talk and private opinions’ of party colleagues. But in 1991, the prosecution argues, Hadzic shared their views about the coexistence of Serbs and Croats being ‘an impossibility'

HADZIC’S AND ARKAN’S ‘CLOSE TIES’

HADZIC FOUGHT FOR ‘LAW AND ORDER’

On the tenth day of his testimony, Goran Hadzic claimed that he advocated a ‘strong’ Republic of Serbian Krajina without ‘crime and anarchy’. Hadzic hoped that in the ‘new world order’ the RSK would be recognized as a state. At the beginning of the cross-examination, the prosecutor contested Hadzic’s claim that he did not have close ties with Arkan

HADZIC: OVCARA WAS ‘A HUMANITARIAN, NOT MILITARY ISSUE’

Goran Hadzic claims that as the prime minister of the Serb Autonomous Region of Eastern Slavonia he had ‘no jurisdiction’ over the judiciary. During his tenure as the president of the Republic of Serbian Krajina, Hadzic advocated the exhumation of the mass grave in Ovcara. The Supreme Defense Council, under Hadzic’s chairmanship, didn’t discuss Ovcara because it was a ‘humanitarian, not military issue’
