Vol. 1, No. 145, 23 October 1997
HUNGARIAN RULING ON CROATIAN CLAIM OVER MISSING ARMS. A
parliamentary sub-committee on 21 October ruled that Croatia does
not have a valid claim for compensation over a missing shipment of
automatic rifles paid for in 1990, Hungarian media reported. At the
same time, it ruled that the company acting as an intermediary
between Zagreb and the Hungarian firm that failed to deliver the
paid-for shipment is entitled to compensation. Two earlier shipments
were delivered to Croatia on the eve of the civil war in former
Yugoslavia, despite protests by Belgrade.
