The municipal court in the Karlovac on Saturday fined a German reporter for having tried to illegally cross from Bosnia and Herzegovina into Croatia with a group of irregular migrants, the local police reported.

The group of eight foreigners, including the 44-year-old German journalist, was caught by the Croatian police while trying to illegally enter Croatia near the town of Cetingrad, and on Saturday, the reporter was taken before the magistrate who imposed a fine of 3,600 kuna (€480) on the offender.

The court upheld the charges for illegal crossing but dismissed the police charges that the German reporter had helped irregular migrants in illegal border crossing. The police said they would appeal the dismissal of those charges.

Apart from the German reporter, the group included four adult migrants and three minors. After they were caught, they said that they would request international protection in Croatia.
