UN warcrimes prosecutor accuses Vatican over Croatian fugitive
Text size Aa Aa

The chief prosecutor at the top UN criminal tribunal is angry with the Vatican for allegedly hiding a leading Croatian warcrimes suspect. Carla Ponte, herself a Catholic, has accused the Vatican of sheltering Ante Gotovina in a monastery despite her frequent appeals for him to be handed over. Gotovina, a former Croatian general, is wanted for atrocities against Croatian Serbs by his troops in 1995.
