We have already informed our readers about an insidious attack by Croatian journalists against the late Bishop of Mostar, Mgr Pavao Zanic.

The serious charge has been uncritically transmitted by journalist-vaticanist Andrea Tornielli who initiated — but abruptly interrupted — an exchange in our commentaries section.

A few days ago, the Bishop of Mostar, Mgr Ratko Peric, has published a response that Richard Chonak translated from Italian into English.

We will be back next week with a follow-up of the first article in presenting the real positions of Mgr Zanic caught on audiotape during the two interviews graciously given in French by the Ordinary of Mostar, in January 1985.
