The House of Human Rights on Wednesday voiced its outrage at the High Misdemeanour Court's ruling allowing the chanting of the 'For the homeland ready' salute as part of the song 'Bojna Cavoglave', by singer Marko Perkovic Thompson, insisting that the ruling is against the Constitution.

"The House of Human Rights is outraged by today's High Misdemeanour Court decision allowing the chanting of the 'For the homeland ready' salute as part of the song 'Bojna Cavoglave'. The decision under which the chanting of the said salute cannot be qualified as disturbance of public order and peace sounds unbelieveable and unconvincing," the NGO said in a press release.

The NGO is confident that the fact that the said salute is part of a song does not change the fact that this was an Ustasha salute that simbolises the criminal Nazi and fascists ideology and is contrary to Article 39 of the Constitution.

The court ruled today that the chant "For the Homeland Ready" at the start of the said song does not amount to an offence.
