Croatia complains about tourist warning
by UPI

ZAGREB, Croatia -- Croatia Thursday protested a warning issued by Britain's Foreign Office that tourists visiting Croatia be aware of threats from organized crime.

The Zagreb government was upset by a BBC article Wednesday on organized crime and corruption in Croatia, including assassinations of journalists and businessmen. Croatia complained it was the malicious article before the oncoming tourist season on the Adriatic coast, that fueled the tourist warning, the Javno.hr Web site said.

Mario Dragun, a spokesman for the Croatian Foreign Ministry said the government had already contacted the British Foreign Office about its warning of dangers from crime organizations.

Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Jandrokovic said his ministry asked the Foreign Office to explain why the security situation in Croatia was not depicted in an objective way, Javno.hr said.
