Croatia Publishes Homeland War Veterans Register For First Time

Croatia’s War Veteran Ministry today formally published a register of those who took part and defended the country during the homeland war.

The Homeland War Veterans’ Register lists of those who have status as a Croatian War Veteran was made public today for the first time on registar.branitelji.hr.

The register has caused a bit of contention in Croatia since the idea to publically publish it was mooted. War Veteran’s Minister Predrag Matic believes that it will help out veterans to easily access benefits and secure their rights, whilst “weeding out” false veterans. It has been widely reported that there have been many who have enjoyed the benefits of the status as a War Veteran even though the closest they came to the war was watching it on TV.
