By 22 November 2020

November the 22nd, 2020 - Minister Davor Bozinovic has stated that the most recently introduced anti-epidemic measures will be policed far more strictly than they have been in the past as the battle with the spread of the pandemic continues.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Davor Bozinovic, Chief of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, was a guest recently for HRT and spoke about the newly introduced measures in the fight against the spread of the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.

Davor Bozinovic said that he hoped that these new measures would lead to a slowdown in the infection and that was precsiely and solely why they were adopted.

"The measures depend on how many people will adhere to them. The measures imply the self-discipline of each one of us. The headquarters adopts measures, it will monitor the implementation of the measures and it will control them,'' he said.

Davor Bozinovic said the police were an integral part of the decision to monitor the implementation of the prescribed and introduced measures, and that things will be more strict now.

''The police, the State Inspectorate and the Directorate of Civil Protection and the Civil Protection Headquarters by county, city and municipality will all be involved. However, the police will now be much stricter in implementing these measures. Through the basic and criminal police, they will investigate the possible existence of misdemeanors and the criminal liability of legal and natural persons,'' the minister warned.

Davor Bozinovic said that the situation in Croatia and its neighbouring countries that have introduced stricter measures is being monitored all the time.

"We introduce measures rationally and thoughtfully and their implementation will be monitored. The epidemiological situation in the future and possible new measures will also decided upon,'' he said.
