If the Croatian Prime Minister designate, Tihomir Oreskovic, accepts the HDZ/Croatian Democratic Union nomination for the new Minister of Veterans Affairs the Croatian war veterans would, after several years of degradation by the leftist political winds finally reap their deserved rewards.

Friday 22 January 2016 is widely touted as the date when the composition of Croatia’s new government will be revealed.

The Holy Trinity feast day celebrated in the Catholic Church is coming up on June 15.

Just inside Serbia, not far from the border with Croatia, not far from Vukovar there’s a place called Kukujevci. It’s in the Syrmia district of the Vojvodina province of Serbia. There’s a Holy Trinity church in Kukujevci, empty and carrying the scars of forced abandonment from early 1990’s.

Just before the Serb aggression against Croatia in 1991, 89.07% of the Kukujevci population was Croat and 1% Serb nationality! Today, these figures remain the same only the 1% are Croat!

One might ask why? How can this be?

The answer lies in ethnic cleansing Serbs attended to within their Serbia while the world stood by watching and focusing on their acts of ethnic cleansing across Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Kukujevci is only one of many places in Vojvodina cleansed of Croats and these horrible…

Journalists of Integrity subjected to abuse

Angela Haggerty is a freelance journalist, broadcaster and editor based in the west of Scotland.

Her most recent work includes editing the best selling book Downfall: How Rangers FC Self-Destructed, charting the demise of one of Scotland’s biggest football clubs. The book was written by Phil Mac Giolla Bhain, a journalist credited with breaking many of the major stories of the club’s impending financial crisis.

Angela is qualified with an HND in Practical Journalism and a Diploma in Journalism from the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ), both qualifications were achieved while studying at Cardonald College Glasgow.

Angela has written for various publications, including The Evening Times, The Glasgow Journal and The Cardonald Courier. She has reported on a wide range of subjects, ranging from cuts in education and elderly care to the Rangers financial crisis and the problem of bigotry in Scotland, and has a particular interest in politics. Angela became an established columnist in local newspaper, The Buteman, writing a lighthearted fortnightly column about commuting from the Isle of Bute to Glasgow over an 18-month period.

Broadcast is the area in which Angela’s journalism career began after hosting and producing a weekly topical programme on Bute Fm, Have Your Say on Bute Fm. Angela was later involved in the set up of a local online-only radio station, Radio Bute, and an internet TV station, Bute TV.

Angela continues to run the HaveYourSay On Bute Facebook debate page and appeared on a BBC One Scotland programme, Storm Force, in 2012 after a vicious storm left parts of the Isle of Bute without power for three days. The online debate forum Angela founded was considered an established tool in gathering local opinion and Angela’s appearance on the programme put forward the views of the local community.

More recently, Angela appeared on Channel 4 News, discussing her experiences of online intimidation and harassment at the hands of a number of Rangers fans as a result of her work on the story of the club’s liquidation.

Angela has gained experience across the board by becoming involved in a number of projects, including writing, editing and producing the monthly newsletter of Bute Community Land Company, the organisation which bought a part of Bute’s Rhubodach Forest from Lord Richard Attenborough, completing the largest ever community buy-out of land in Scotland.

In 2010, Angela gained a work experience placement at the CBS News bureau in London, and has completed work experience placements at the Herald & Times and The Buteman.

Angela spent a year living in the south of England before returning to the west of Scotland in 2009, where she currently resides.
