The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which was set up to prosecute crimes committed during the wars in the former Yugoslavia, has finally left Croatia after closing down its office in the capital Zagreb today.
ICTY, which is a body of the United Nations and an ad hoc court located in The Hague, also shut down one office in Pristina, Kosovo. It will continue to operate an office in Belgrade, Serbia and in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
ICTY released and acquitted Croatian generals Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac earlier last month.
