Croatia has spent HRK 5.5bn on mine clearance in last 20 years

foto: HinaZagreb - In the last 20 years Croatia has spent nearly 5.5 billion kuna (743 million euros) on mine clearance operations, and 595 people have been injured by mine explosions since the end of the 1991-1995 war, including 203 fatally, the Croatian parliament was told on Friday.

At the start of last year, 447 square kilometres of land spreading across nine counties was still contaminated with unexploded ordnance left over from the Homeland War, Žarko Katić, state secretary at the Ministry of the Interior, said while presenting a report on the implementation of the mine action plan in 2017. 2017 was the first year in which no mine-related casualties were reported.

The mine action plan for last year was not carried out, given that of the 58.3 square kilometres planned 36.5 square kilometres was cleared of mines and of the 505 million kuna (68.2 million euros) allocated 347 million kuna (47 million euros) was spent, Katić said, adding that a delay in mine removal operations and a change in the method of calculation of the land cleared were some of the reasons.

Some 405 square kilometres of land still remains to be cleared, and since it will not be possible to complete this task by 1 March 2019, the government has proposed extending the deadline by seven years, to 1 March 2026. (Hina)
