My Hero Has Been Arrested

Vit Jedlicka has been arrested by Croatian authorities and charged with trespassing. On April 17th, I posted a story about Mr. Jedlicka and his founding of Liberland, an unclaimed terra nullius territory wedged between Serbia and Croatia. Well, someone in the Croatian government did not approve of Liberland.

Fox News is reporting today:

“The president of the self-proclaimed micro-nation of the Free Republic of Liberland, Vít Jedlička, has been arrested by Croatian police for illegally trespassing an international border,” read the statement. “The arrest may have taken place on no man’s land territory. This would raise issues on the Croatian-Serbian border and could start a new crisis in the Balkans.”

That is too bad. I would have joined him had he chosen a nice desert island.
