In the name of the Croatian government, Croatia's prime minister writes that Jasna Babić's name will remain permanently recorded in the history of Croatian journalism. The prime minister also refers to the fact that Babić won numerous awards for her work and left her mark on a number of different newsrooms, from the former youth newspaper Polet in the 1980's to the daily and weekly newspapers and magazines of today.

Jasna Babić, who died on Tuesday at the age of 60 as a result of a serious illness, aside from working for publications such as Danas, Večernji list, Slobodna Dalmacija, Globus, and Nacional, was the author of two investigative journalistic books entitled "the Zagreb Mafia" and "The Blaškić Plot."
