“Croatia punishes all forms of glorification of fascist regimes but allows for the use of ‘For the Homeland Ready’ salute strictly to commemorate soldiers killed in the 1991-1995 Homeland War, according to one of the main recommendations and guidelines sent to the government on Wednesday by the Council for dealing with the consequences of undemocratic regimes.

After today’s Council session, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said the ‘For the Homeland Ready’ salute, registered as a part of statutory provisions of certain associations related to the activities of HOS (Croatian Defense Forces) during the Homeland War, was contrary to the Croatian constitution.

HOS was the armed wing of the Croatian Party of Rights (HSP) in the Homeland War. The salute ‘For the Homeland Ready’ was used by the Nazi-allied Independent State of Croatia (1941-1945).” (total-croatia-news)
