Serbs were attacked first. Yugoslavia was attacked and not Croatia. Susak, Glavas and Vice Vukojevic attacked Borovo Selo to provoke a war", says Boljkovac in an exclusive interview for "Dnevni List, Vesti" which is intended for Serb readers living in Germany.
Josip Boljkovac, Minister of Police in Tudjmans administration speaks of how Croatia planned and attacked Serbs in Croatia with intention to provoke a war. Boljkovac claims that Tudjman and Milosevic through out the entire war were having talks and made agreements with eachother, and made decisions together.
Glavas was accusing me during the testimony of stalking him for the destruction of the bridge over the river Drava in Osijek. He said that he destroyed the bridge in order to protect the city from the JNA (Jugoslav National Army) tanks, and I said that the JNA at the time was a regular army of an internationally recognised state (Jugoslavia) and that Croatia, which had not yet been recognised, a part of that Jugoslavia, " said Boljkovac, adding that his testimony at the Glavas trial was censored.
On the reporters question about who started the war, Boljkovac surprisingly answers,"Serbs were attacked first, Jugoslavia was attacked and not Croatia! Susak, Glavas and Vice Vukojevic attacked Borovo Selo in order to provoke a war,"
Boljkovac beleives that the war continued according to plans between Milosevic and Tudjman to split up Bosnia between them. And to exchange the population in those areas with ethnic cleansing. Tudjman woulld give up Bosanska Posavina to Milosevic and Milosevic woulld help Tudjman to rid the Serbs in Krajina.
Boljkovac claims to have material evidence that the former General of JNA and later General in The Croatian Army, Milivoj Petkovic organised withdrawal of Croats from Bosanska Posavina.
On the question from the reporter from the Frankfurt "Vesti" about any possible evidence of agreements between Milosevic and Tudjman,
Boljkovac answers that one time when he ordered the arrest of the murders of the chief of police in Osijek, Josip Reihl Kir, Tudjman had said that even Milosevic thinks that he shoulldnt be head of the MUP. As more evidence he says that Tudjmans close collaborator, Hrvoje Sarinic has been visiting Milosevic at least 40 times during the war.
further on, he accuses Tudjman of wanting a war at any cost and according to Tudjmans ideas, the Serbs had to dissapear from Croatia, and the murder of Josip Kir was ordered by the very top of the government.
Boljkovac adds that 1991 before a single shot was fired, the families of prominent Croatian politicians had plans set up to escape. Amongst these were high positioned HDZ-members and also the former Croatian President Stipe Mesic.
