The Croatian Prime Minister met with representatives of former prisoners of Serb-run concentration camps on Tuesday. The focus of discussion was on an HDLSKL initiative that would see Croatian citizens interned in Serbian concentration camps during the 1991-1995 Homeland War file individual lawsuits against Serbia for reparations.
It was agreed that consultations would continue with relevant government departments, notably the ministries of justice and veterans' affairs, on providing legal and professional aid to former camp prisoners, and that a special commission would be established to that effect.
Veteran's Affairs Minister Tomo Medved: "We concluded that we will form an expert team that will provide support with the goal of making the best possible preparations and creating the preconditions necessary for their reparations."
Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said that the government was aware of the importance of problems faced by war veterans and their families and that it would continue to support the work of the HDLSKL. Along with the Veteran's Affairs Minister, the meeting was also attended by Interior Minister Davor Božinović, Foreign Minister Gordan Grlić Radman, Justice Minister Dražen Bošnjaković and HDLSKL President Danijel Rehak.
