Kaic lost his life in the suburb of Brijest when fire was opened from a JNA armoured fighting vehicle at the HRT crew that was covering the passage of a JNA column of tanks through Osijek.

Participants in today’s commemoration pointed out that Kaić had been covering the war developments in Slavonia at the start of the Great Serbian aggression.

His work conveyed the truth about the war and the beginning of the Great Serbia aggression, the war veterans ministry’s state secretary, Špiro Janović, said at today”s commemorative events.

The truth cannot be interpreted differently, and Kaić’s recordings of the events in Osijek, Aljmaš and Dalj show the suffering of the Croatian people and the resolve of Croatian soldiers, Janović said.

In that incident 30 years ago, Kaić was killed while an HRT sound operator, Dragan Krička, was seriously wounded and the third member of the TV crew, journalist Saša Kopljar, remained unwounded.
