A Zagreb Prosecutor, The judgment condemns the leaderships of both Herceg-Bosna and Croatia and is contrary to historical facts. The trial was one of the longest and most document heavy cases in the Tribunal’s history and is currently at the appeal stage. Ms. Pinter has taken upon herself the immense task of defending the legacy of the HVO in Bosnia Herzegovina which, if left unchallenged, will leave misinterpreted facts as historical consequences. Her commitment to justice is real and her work should be recognized and commended.
