A Croatian court official said recent comments by a Nazi-hunter regarding the trial of a former Croatian concentration camp commander violated his right to a fair trial. Efraim Zuroff, the director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Israel Office, was quoted last week as saying that the evidence against Dinko Sakic is “firm, clear and irrefutable.” Sakic, who was the head of the Jasenovac camp from 1942 to 1944, was extradited to Croatia last month from Argentina.
