ZAGREB, November 23, 2018 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenković met with the MICT war crimes tribunal (International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals), Judge Theodor Meron, in Zagreb on Thursday and informed him that Croatia is continuing to try war crimes, the government said in a press release.

The Mechanism succeeded the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which was operational from 1993 to the end of 2017 and conducted trials for the gravest war crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s wars.

Judge Meron will remain at the helm of the Mechanism until 18 January 2019 when he will be replaced by Maltese Judge Carmel Agius, the last ICTY president.

Plenković underscored that Croatia was continuing with its investigations and trials of war crimes committed in Croatia since 1991, the press release said.

The two officials underlined the need for cooperation with neighbouring countries with the aim of trying all war crimes.

Plenković and Meron discussed an initiative to establish information centres in the region to provide access to the public data and archives of the ICTY and the Mechanism, the press release said.
