Transparency International Croatia would like to stress that the recent arrests of the Mayor of the City of Zagreb, mr. Milan Bandic and CEO of Zagreb Holding, mr. Slobodan Ljubicic, are a new proof that no one is above the law.
The arrest of the Mayor of the City of Zagreb Mr. Milan Bandic is an epilogue to the numerous scandals that have been attached to Mr. Bandic’s name for many years now. Considering that, at this moment, the public is provided with scarce information regarding the crimes Mr. Bandic, as well as the other detainees, are being officially charged for, Transparency International Croatia cannot comment in detail this overall event. However, TIH would like to express its satisfaction with the work of USKOK and its fight against corruption in the Croatian capital. City of Zagreb and the Zagreb Holding company should operate transparently without opening the slightest room for corruption and other crimes.” said Mrs. Davorka Budimir, president of TIC.
