The ZPHP was established by the returnees’ associations of Vukovar-Srijem and Osijek-Baranja counties.
A declaration on Croatian returnees’ rights and legitimate expectations was adopted at the founding assembly, the ZPHP said on Sunday.
With the declaration, the ZPHP encourages relevant institutions and the government to consistently apply the international agreements Croatia signed with the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Srijem Agreement which regulate the right to compensation for war damage to all victims.
In doing so, the ZPHP referred to a United Nations Compensation Commission decision of 24 January 1992 on the war damage estimated in the Iraq-Kuwait war.
The ZPHP appealed to the Foreign Ministry to start negotiations with Croatia’s neighbours, notably Serbia, on the border issue, starting from the Badinter Commission Conclusion of 1991.
The ZPHP called for intensifying efforts to trace persons gone missing in the Homeland War and launching investigations and the prosecution of those responsible for war crimes.
