Croatian cops

Trg Republike, oops, Jelacic Platz

These guys are some sort of military police, or maybe security. All I know is when you are in a war these are people you stay away from. It might be dangerous at the front, but sometimes it's a lot more dangerous 12 km back. Don't be telling these guys you left your driver's license in your other pants.

other sizes: small medium original

As of 2014. J. Perković is in german custody, waiting for the trial of murder of one croatian political "emigrant", since he was highly ranked in Yugoslavian secret police, colloquilally known as "Udba".

His companion Mate L. is also connected to the former system, he was in the Police or "Milicija".

Unusually high number of top positioned officials from former, communist system switched sides in the 90s and placed themselves in the top ranks of the "new state".
Although not publicly visible, great deal of them are VERY INFLUENTAL to these days (or their children, so called "children of the communism"),
check the backstory of J. Perković extradition and the means of current government that tried to prevent it, to see what I mean when saying about the influence from the shadows.

The man on the right is Josip Perkovic. He was the right hand of deceased minister of defense, Gojko Susak.

Zidar> The one on the left is Tudjmans bodyguard but I can't remember his name. I wonder what he's doing these days as Tudjman is no more!
