Father Arrested Due to Illegal Possession of Weapons
After the bloody shooting in St. Mark’s Square and the wounding of a police officer who is stable so far, the father of the young man who shot a police officer was arrested and faces charges. They found two rifles and pieces of various ammunition in a house in Kletište. A criminal complaint was filed against him. Police also took other evidence expected to shed light on the motives of the shooting in Zagreb.
“Yesterday, October 12, by order of the court, at two addresses in Kletište and at one address in Krajiška Kutinica in the Kutina area, the home and other premises used by the 59-year-old father from the Kutina area were searched. At one address, in Kletište, they found two rifles with optical sights and a silencer and 1,169 pieces of various ammunition. For the criminal offense of illegal possession, manufacture and procurement of weapons and explosives, he was arrested and handed over to the custody supervisor with a criminal report “, the Police Department of Sisak-Moslavina announced.
After police announced that illegal firearms and a lot of bullets had been found in the house, Danijel’s uncle was astounded, just as he was surprised by his brother’s arrest. Jutarnji list spoke to him about the attack and the investigation.
Uncle: Doesn’t Everyone Have Something Left Over from The War?
“I called my brother’s wife, Danijel’s mother, last night after everything and then, early this morning, I asked her where my brother is. She told me he had gone to town and did not know when he would return. I worry because we are all in shock and traumatized which will take a long time to recover from,” Mato Bezuk said.
“Little Danijel is barely cold, nor has he been properly buried and sent off. The family has no breathing space to come to their senses. It is clear to me that such a crime entails a search of the house, but given the tragedy, I think it could have waited a few days. It is simply incomprehensible to me,” Mato Bezuk told Jutarnji list.
He added that he did not know about the firearms. “I did not know about the weapons in that house. Nor did I care what my brother kept and where. Doesn’t everyone have something left over from the war? There was a lot of bloodshed for our homeland and not all defenders got what they deserved,” concludes the uncle of the late Danijel, about whom the village does not stop speaking well of, despite the bloody crime which borders on terrorism.
