Law Enforcement / Criminalisation
Given the geographical position of Croatia, and the fact that during the 90s of last century, during the war in former Yugoslavia, there are several hundred thousand pieces of firearms, and it is to expect that the criminal groups engaged in this kind of criminal activity, continue its activities primarily for the purpose of smuggling weapons in those areas where there will be interest in buying illegal weapons.
It is expected that the prices of illegal weapons will increase, and that this kind of crime will be more and more profitable and therefore interesting to criminal groups that deal with these activities, and it can be expected that this criminal activity will be intensified.
