Phobias for fugitives

The Croatian justice minister, Vesna Škare Ozbolt, is quoted today as explaining that the fugitive Ante Gotovina, who is charged by ICTY with war crimes and crimes against humanity, is afraid to face the charges against him because a previous prison sentence in Nicaragua made him "phobic of any kind of imprisonment."

And no prosecutor would want to file charges against people who are afraid of prison. Only against people who fantasize about it.

There's more, a reply from his lawyers:


People sure seem to know a lot about the private feelings of a person when they do not know where he is!
