Croatian mud: The attackers were sentenced. The organizers are free.

Domagoj Margetić said he would report his case with Ivica Orešković to the Mission of leading organisations for protection of media freedom during her stay in Croatia these days.  I am sorry that the Croatian authorities,  Croatian Journalists’ Association as well as the leading organizations for the protection of media freedom, have so far not reacted to my case in connection with the same person who attacked Domagoj Margetić.
I welcome the fact that three perpetrators responsible for beating the investigative journalist @45lines Željko Peratović in 2015, were sentenced to in total 7,5 years in prison. It is a clear sign that attacks against journalists will be properly punished.
OSCE media freedom published this comment on twitter on January 11 as a reaction to the news in Jutarnji list that three people were sentenced by the first-instance verdict: Vladimir Čunko Sr (1 year prison), Vladimir Čunko Jr (3 years in prison) and Zihnija Grahović (3,5 years in prison), together to 7.5 years in prison, because they attacked me on May 28, 2015 in my house in Karlovac.
Peratović: I am satisfied, but the police and prosecution failed to consider that the attackers came back to finish me off
For the defeated Peratović, the crime was a clear murder attempt, but he was pleased with the verdict
– In view of the behavior of the Karlovac Police and the Karlovac Prosecution in this case, which have been underlined by the total obstruction, I am satisfied with the judgment of Judge Nenad Lukić. Police have failed to criminalize that the defendants were twice in my possession, namely that they came to kill me another time after someone told them that they did not succeed for the first time. Police have characterized it only as damaging someone else’s stuff (broken entrance door and windshield on the car). The prosecution did not want to analyze the telephone contacts of the person I considered the organizer of the murder attempt with the perpetrators of that act. The prosecution dismissed my proposal with the explanation that this way these people would be hurt by human rights, Peratovic told Jutarnji list for the first-instance verdict.
Since I left Croatia in the summer of 2016 I have visited my homeland only a few times, and only for the testimony in court. I do not feel safe in Croatia regardless of this verdict.
I especially do not feel secure when I learned that journalist Domagoj Margetić was attacked by Zagreb on December 13, 2016 in Zagreb by Ivica Orešković, a person with a criminal past linked to war crimes in Gospić and Josip Perković, UDBA chief sentenced in Germany  – the topics I am writing for decades.
sentenced, Margetić, Orešković
Margetić tells that he was attacked by Ivica Orešković and that police and judiciary have not taken anything to punish the attacker for more than a year.
Ivica Orešković also threatened me in April 2012 while I was at dinner with German journalist Norbert Mappes-Niedik.  Clan Orešković and their helpers in Croatia and Switzerland have been reported to Croatian and Swiss authorities  in August 2017 because I have evidence that they are frightened by the German authorities’ investigation of the involvement of Tihomir Orešković, Milan Štimac and Tomislav Mičić in the murders of Yugoslav State Security Services of Croatian emigrants in the 80s on German soil. New suspects are associated with first-degree sentenced chiefs of communist secret police Josip Perković and Zdravko Mustač.
Domagoj Margetić said he would report his case with Ivica Orešković to the Mission of leading organisations for protection of media freedom during her stay in Croatia these days.  I am sorry that the Croatian authorities,  Croatian Journalists’ Association as well as the leading organizations for the protection of media freedom, have so far not reacted to my case in connection with the same person who attacked Domagoj Margetić.
