Matic becomes presidential envoy for missing in Croatia

President Aleksandar Vucic appointed on Friday Veran Matic as his special envoy for resolving the issue of missing persons with Croatia.

Veran Matic was actively engaged in the anti-war activities during the nineties. He took part in humanitarian campaigns including the mass campaign of helping the victims of Operation Storm back in 1995, when we gathered aid and then distributed it with the assistance of Belgrade cab drivers, all the way to Banja Luka...

Matic organized several international conferences regarding the issue of facing with the past and experiences of other countries, the potentials of adjusting the solutions to the post conflict period in the region, and produced some twenty documentaries dealing with the issue of facing with the past, including TV programs "Truth, Responsibility and Reconciliation," another dealing with the detention center Camp Begejci, entitled "Heads up, hands on the back," as well as "Paulin's Palace," "Dossier Osijek," "Lora," "Memento 26"...

Thanks to a documentary entitled "Sjeverin," a crime committed against 16 Muslims was resolved, while the perpetrators got arrested and convicted.

The documentary "Vukovar - Final Cut" was received in the same emotional and emphatic manner both in Zagreb and in Belgrade.

As the special envoy, Matic will cooperate with the special adviser to the Croatian president for issues of missing persons, Osijek Mayor Ivica Vrkic.

During a recent meeting with Vrkic, Vucic said that resolving the issue of missing persons was the most important civilizational and humanitarian issue for Serbs and Croats, and that the state organs of Serbia will do everything to find the missing and shed light on their fate.
