A sum of HRK 29 million that was supposed to be invested in the luxurious resort Hotels Plat near Dubrovnik has been redirected to Agrokor, reports DuList.

The Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development (HBOR) approved funding for the renovation project of the hotel complex, and yet the sum is now being loaned to Agrokor. In 2014, Karisma Resorts International and Agrokor co-founded a company called HKA četiri d.o.o in order to participate in a public contest for privatisation of 92.5% of shares in Hoteli Plat d.d. This means Agrokor first invested in the project, then pledged their shares after the recent collapse, then borrowed money they invested in the first place. A couple of months ago, in case of non-payment of liabilities, Agrokor would've undergone an enforcement procedure that would have their shares sold to a new investor. However, such an outcome is now prevented by Lex Agrokor.

As Agrokor didn't repay the major part of the loan, they inflicted damages on both HBOR and the citizens of Croatia. Sources say HBOR wasn't even informed about the ongoing situation on time.

There is some heavy traffic on the A3 Bregana-Lipovac, eastbound, the queue at the border crossing Bajakovo is approximately 2,5 km long. On the A6 Rijeka-Zagreb between Ravna Gora and Vrbovsko there is a broken down freight vehicle (on the 22nd km) in direction Zagreb, the right hand lane is closed (100 m). Sections of the roads closed due to roadworks: -on the DC1 state road in Lučko (Zagreb) -on the DC6 state road, section Glina-Dvor border crossing; -on the DC502 Smilčić-Pridraga state road. Traffic is regulated by traffic signals/one road lane is free only: -on the DC1 state road in Knin until 14 July; -on the DC1 state road at Mostanje and on the section Sučević-Otrić. -on the DC8 Adriatic road on the section Zaton Doli-Bistrina; -on the DC66 Pula-Most Raša state road. With the sunny and dry weather, more and more cyclists and motorists are on the roads. Other vehicles (such as cars or trucks) should look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes and opening doors next to moving traffic. Check your mirrors and be aware of blind spots before turning. While at a stop sign or red light, make a complete stop in order to let bikers pass, and check for unseen riders. Respect the right of way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Cyclists are not immune to traffic violations: pay attention to red lights and practice arm signaling!
