Bus Loads From Dalmatia On Zagreb Vigil For Gotovina

11 Bus loads of army personal will set off at midnight from Dalmatia on route to the capital Zagreb to participate in a vigil on Friday morning which will culminate in them gathering on the capital’s main square to watch the Hague hand down its final sentence to Croatian Generals Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac.

We are going to Zagreb, to mass, vigil, take flowers to the graves at Mirogoj for those that died in the war, light candles, and on Friday we will watch the sentence on Ban Jelacic sqaure, said Ivica Tolji, a volunteer in the war to 24sata.

In Zagreb this evening many will gather at the Wall of Pain at Mirogoj cemetrey to light candles before heading down to the Zagreb Cathedral for prayer ahead of tomorrow’s decision.

Croatian Generals Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac will find out tomorrow at 9am if their appeal has been successful when the Hague Court hands down its final verdict in their case. In mid-April last year, the Hague court sentenced the two Croatian generals for war crimes, with Gotovina receiving 24 years, and Markac 18 years in prison.
