Croats turn their backs to EU

Croats turn their backs to EU

A new poll shows that Croatian support for European Union membership has reached an all-time low after a U.N. war crimes tribunal sentenced two Croatian generals to stiff prison terms.
The poll released by Croatia's Jutarnji List newspaper on Monday says that only 23 percent of the Croatians currently support the EU accession. The survey of 700 people had a 3.7 percentage point margin of error.
The U.N. tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, sentenced Gen. Ante Gotovina to 24 years and Gen. Mladen Markac to 18 years in jail for atrocities against minority Serbs during a military offensive in 1995 in which Croatia retook the land held by the rebels.
