Horriffying confession of Croatian veteran: I killed 72 Serbs with my own hands inculding women; they were “Chetniks” [Serbs] and our enemies.
“It was enough to be a Serb in Gospic to mean that you did not exist anymore. Our unit liquidated some 90 to 100 people in less than a month there. Therefore, it is not true what Vekic said – in an interview published in your newspapers – that 170 people were killed in Gospic; nobody was there at that time performing the liquidation except us. The order for Gospic was to perform “ethnic cleansing”, so we killed directors of post offices and hospitals, a restaurant owner and many other Serbs. Executions were performed by shooting at point blank range since we did not have much time. I repeat, orders from the headquarters were to reduce the percentage of Serbs in Gospic.”
