ZAGREB, February 19, 2018 – Sisak County Court on Monday sentenced a Serb citizen in absentia to 20 years imprisonment for the murder of three and attempted murder of four Croatian police officers while commanding a Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA) tank.

The state prosecutor’s office on Monday reported that Zoran Tomić had been found guilty of each count of his indictment and sentenced to 20 years imprisonment.
