Our accusations that the New Independent State of Croatia is not different from its World War II namesake should not be taken lightly. 
The case of Dinko Sakic illustrates it quite well.

Israel not expected to ask for Sakic extradition

JERUSALEM - Israel is unlikely to seek the extradition of the commander of a World War II concentration camp from Argentina, preferring that he be tried in Croatia, officials said today.

Argentine President Carlos Menem last week ordered police to detain Dinko Sakic and has indicated he would not oppose his extradition.

Sakic, 76, was the highest commander at Jasenovac, a concentration camp where tens of thousands of Serbs, Gypsies, and Jews were killed under Croatian dictator Ante Pavelic, a wartime ally of Nazi Germany.

In a recent television interview in Buenos Aires, Sakic acknowledged that he was a commander at the camp, but said ``nothing happened in Jasenovac.'' He has since disappeared from his home in Argentina.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Amir Gissin said Israel so far has made no request to bring Sakic to Israel to stand trial.

Croatian Justice Minister Miroslav Separovic said he has started legal and diplomatic procedures to have Sakic returned for trial.
