A board member of Indict is Peter Galbraith, former US Ambassador to Croatia. It is believed that Galbraith gave a green light to Croatia's leader Franjo Tudjman to carry out 'Operation Storm' which in 1995 ethnically cleansed the entire Serbian population of Croatia. >From Slate http://slate.msn.com/id/64411/ In 1995, Tudjman again showed his talent for limiting his brutality just enough to get away with it. That summer, he invaded the Krajina, the Serb area captured by Milosevic in 1991. The 200,000 Serb residents fled to Serbia rather than fight. Tudjman punctuated the arguably justified invasion with a vicious exclamation point. He had his troops burn down 70 percent of Serbian houses, passed laws to confiscate Serb property, and allowed gangs of Croat thugs to murder the few elderly Serbs who remained. "What he did after the invasion was inexcusable," says Peter Galbraith, then U.S. ambassador to Croatia. But the invasion clearly was 'excusable' as far as Galbraith was concerned (and 200,000 is a gross underestimate, the real figure is nearer 400,000). So, if Anne Clwyd is looking for someone to put on trial for ethnic cleansing, she could start by looking across the table at the next board meeting of Indict.
