    Glad to hear he wants to become a Croat and now he can go through the same process and wait up to 3 years to be approved like the rest of the Croatian diaspora has to.This nonsense that people of stature are more important and get get a citizenship in one week then Croats in diaspora is morally wrong and unethical.
