Croatian general Mladen Markac's lawyer and fellow general Ante Gotovina on trial for war crimes are expected to walk free from the court in the Hague on Friday, says their lawyer.
Talking to news website Dnevnik.hr., lawyer Tomislav Kuzmanovic said: "I expect the International War crimes Tribunal to comply with my request to the free the generals."
"I expect what we asked in our appeal to the International War Crimes Tribunal, to free the generals", the lawyer Tomislav Kuzmanovic has told to the news website Dnevnik.hr .
Markac and Gotovina were sentenced in April 2011 after being found guilty by the tribunal of war crimes against Serb civilians.
Gotovina received a 24-year sentence and Markac 18 years.
Personally addressing the court at his appeal hearing, Gotovina, speaking in French, said that all he done was defend his country.
"As a man, I am sorry for every lost life and destroyed property.
"I cannot, nevertheless, be responsible for what others have done or failed to do while I was already far away in Bosnia.
"I am convinced that I fulfilled my duties in the best possible way.
"We were in a battle for life and death with the enemy and we were fighting to liberate our land," he said.
