Description

The Vecernji list (Croatia) digs into the assignation of the Croatian mobster and "king of the poker slot machines" Vjeko Slisko, but discovers a lot more about his assassin, James Cappau. Cappau, according to his mother, was the son of Josip Broz Tito, the former Yugoslav president. The investigation uncovered documents linking Cappeau with arms smuggling to ultranationalist groups in France and Chechnya and the sale of a satellite phone for Dzohar Dudaev, the Chechen leader. (A Russian spy satellite intercepted a call from the phone and killed Dudaev.)
