Detained Croatian reporter stages hunger strike

08/08/2006

ZAGREB, Croatia -- Reporter Domagoj Margetic, who has been in custody since Friday (4 August) at the request of the UN war crimes tribunal, has gone on a hunger strike, his lawyers announced on Monday. Margetic was apprehended after he refused to accept a Hague tribunal injunction delivered to him via the Croatian judiciary. The injunction came after Margetic listed the names of protected witnesses on his personal website. (Vecernji list - 08/07/06; HRT - 06/08/06)
