Justice minister: Croatias entry in EU not to be delayed over judiciary.

By bne IntelliNews April 13, 2010
Justice minister Ivan Simonovic said that the countrys accession to the EU will be not delayed over inefficient judiciary. He explained that the only serious problem, which has been brought up recently, was the co-operation with the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague over Croatia 's failure to deliver all the military documents requested by prosecutors in the trial of three Croatian generals. However, he believed that the policy chapter on judiciary and fundamental rights would be opened in June. He expressed hope that the European Commission will send the draft negotiation position, which could be adopted in June. In respect to the military documents Simonovic said that he believed that a progress will be made.
