The Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences received the judgment against Jadranko Prlić, Bruno Stoić, Slobodan Praljak, Milivoj Petković, Valentin Ćorić and Berislav Pušić with dissatisfaction and concern, said the statement.

It goes on to say that this unjust ruling, which is not based on historical facts, will not contribute to reconciliation and calming tensions in Bosnia and Herzegovina and South East Europe.

Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina were the victims of a Serbian aggression with a criminal aim to create a greater Serbia. During wartime events in Bosnia and Herzegovina there was not a joint criminal enterprise on the Croatian side nor was there any idea that would include actions that are not in accordance with the international legal order. It should be emphasized that Croatia is the most responsible for the establishment and survival of Bosnia and Herzegovina as an independent country, said the statement.
