A lawyer for a former Croatian concentration camp commander said Dinko Sakic’s trial would begin in two or three months. The lawyer made these comments after Sakic, who was extradited from Argentina last week, made an appearance at a pretrial hearing in the Croatian capital of Zagreb. From 1942 to 1944, Sakic was commandant at the Jasenovac concentration camp, where an estimated 500,000 Jews, Serbs and Gypsies were murdered under Croatia’s Nazi puppet regime.
