Ante Gotovina Sues U.S Government

ANTE GOTOVINARetired Croatian general Ante Gotovina, who was acquitted of war crime charges and released from a Hague prison in 2011 after spending 7 years inside, is suing the U.S Department of Treasury, reports daily Vecernji list

Gotovina (58), who now operates a tuna farming business in Croatia, has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Treasury to lift economic sanctions imposed against him that have been in place for more than a decade.

The U.S. government listed Gotovina as a Specially Designated National in 2003, subjecting him personally to economic sanctions. After his acquittal, Gotovina, it was reported, had requested that the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control remove the designation. When they did not do so, he filed a suit in the US District Court for the District of Columbia.
