Serbia has issued a counter-suit against Croatia in front of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), demanding, among other things, that Croatia remove the August 5, "Day of Victory and Homeland Gratitude and the Day of Croatian Defenders", from its list of public holidays.

Croatia's initial 1999 suit, and the Serbian counter-suit of January 2010, both relate to events that took place during the Balkan wars of the 1990's.
