This paper examines the retrial of five Croatian Serb men from the Eastern Slavonian village of Šodolovci on charges of war crimes. The paper provides background to the original trial and details of the subsequent retrial and how it failed to comply with international standards for a fair trial. On 24 November 1999, the Croatian Supreme Court ruled that their retrial before the Osijek County Court had been tainted by serious procedural violations and sent the case back for retrial.
