A Croatian woman who says she was unfairly dismissed from her job is hoping to have her case referred to the U.S Helsinki Commission, thanks to her story being reported in the Croatian Times.
Snjezana Pelivan was sacked from her job as marketing manager with Radio Free Europe in 2005.
She says she was given no reason for the dismissal, had never been disciplined in the past and received no severance pay.
Claiming the Czech Republic had failed to protect her rights she took her case to the Czech Helsinki Committee (CHC).
They took the case to the European Court of Human Justice and filed for human rights violations.
Now the CHC has asked the U.S. Helsinki Commission "for assistance and intervention in a political matter damaging the international reputation of both the Czech Republic and the United States."
And Pelivan is asking the Croatian government to get involved in her claims against both countries.
Radio Free Europe was set by by the US in Germany 1949 to combat the spread of Communism and moved its HQ to Prague in the Czech Republic in 1995.
