Zagreb Bomber Remanded In Custody

The man charged by police in connection with 2 bomb blasts in West Zagreb, Croatia, was literally dragged to court by police officers on Monday.

Vojislav Blazevic (54) was remanded in custody for 30-days whilst investigations continued. The lawyer for Blazevic, who is currently being held in hospital because of injuries he suffered in one of the blasts, says his client has maintained his silence since his arrest and has gone on a hunger strike. Police had to physically drag him to the Zagreb County Court as he refused to move.

Blazevic is charged planting and detonating an amateur bomb at a bus station in Stenjevac, West Zagreb late on 11 January and also planting an explosive device on train tracks near the Podsused station in West Zagreb on 9 January which exploded when a freight train collided with the device.

Blazevic faces 5 years in jail if found guilty.
