THE HAGUE, the Netherlands (November 5,2007) - The highest levels of the Croatian government secretly worked to seize part of Bosnia while pretending friendship with the Bosnian government, according to documents prosecutors have asked to be admitted as evidence in the case against six officials of the Croatians living in Bosnia currently standing trial in The Hague.

The documents, transcripts of the then Croatian President Franjo Tudjman’s conversations, show Croatian officials believed the West supported it in its undercover bid "to prevent a Muslim state being created in Europe".

Croatian war criminals Jadranko Prlic, Bruno Stojic, Slobodan Praljak, Milivoj Petkovic, Valentin Coric and Berislav Pusic were senior political and paramilitary leaders of the self-proclaimed Croatian fascist creature in Bosnia known as "Herceg Bosna" ("the HB").

They face 26 charges of war crimes for the expulsion and murder of the Bosnian civilians during the Croatian aggression against Bosnia in the early 1990's.

They are also accused of being part of a joint criminal enterprise to politically and militarily subjugate Bosnians and other non-Croatians from some parts of Bosnia and to join that territory of Bosnia to a “Greater Croatia”.

Involved in this criminal enterprise were the Croatian President Franjo Tudjman, former Croatian Defence Minister Gojko Susak and Mate Boban, president of the fascist Croatian creature in Bosnia "the HB". All three Croatian war criminals are now deceased.

On October 29, the prosecutors asked the judges to admit into evidence 87 transcripts of the Croatian President Tudjman’s meetings with various people that took place at the time relevant to the indictment.

Most of these transcripts have already been admitted in part or in full as evidence in other trials held at the Hague tribunal.

Several of the transcripts record how Tudjman ordered regular Croatian troops to be secretly sent to Bosnia to set up checkpoints and to support the Croatians living there.

“Gentlemen, we’ve succeeded, we’ve succeeded in getting not just Herceg Bosna, which is what we had. We’ve (now) got,we can say this among ourselves,half of Bosnia, if we’re good at governing it, if we govern cleverly,” said the Croatian President Franjo Tudjman at a meeting with representatives of the fascist Croatian creature in Bosnia "the HB",on November 24, 1995.

Tudjman also regularly referred to Croatia as being on the front line against the expansion of Islam, and even expressed sympathy for the genocidal Serbian aggressor because Serbians are Christians.

“Europe and the world are a bit afraid of… the creation of an Islamic (state) in Europe. So that they would even be inclined for a division (of Bosnia) to be carried out between Croatia and Serbia in order to avoid having that separate Muslim state, you know, said the Croatian President Franjo Tudjman on January 8, 1992.

The judges are expected to rule soon on whether all these transcripts will be admitted into evidence against Croatian war criminals Jadranko Prlic, Bruno Stojic, Slobodan Praljak, Milivoj Petkovic, Valentin Coric and Berislav Pusic.
