Slobodan Praljak, the retired Croatian Army general, has committed suicide today after drinking a poison when he was told that he would be sentenced to 20 years in prison.
– Slobodan Praljak is not a war criminal. With contempt I reject the verdict, he said before The Hague and before the wide audience, he smiled, and drank poison.
Those were his last words.
The doctors failed to save him.
