Killers of Croatian journalist sentenced

A  Zagreb court sentenced six alleged gang members to a maximum of 40 years each for the Oct. 23, 2008 killing of journalist Ivo Pukanic.

A prosecutor said the car bombing that killed Pukanic, editor-in-chief of a political weekly Nacional, and his marketing director, Niko Franjic, may have been motivated by Pukanic’s writing about organized crime.

It may have taken a long time, but it good to know that even war-torn Croatia and Serbia can cooperate in a criminal case. Especially a case that brings to justice the killers of a journalist who was doing his job.
