Prime Minister: There Will Be Accountability for Any Possible Wrongdoings

By 13 May 2018

ZAGREB, May 13, 2018 - Prime Minister and Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) president Andrej Plenković said on Sunday that light would be shed on all issues regarding the email correspondence between Economy Minister Martina Dalić and consultants and lawyers who worked on Lex Agrokor, and that if there was any wrongdoing, he would ask for responsibility.

"If there was any wrongdoing, we will seek responsibility and correct the mistakes, if there were any," the prime minister told the press when asked if Dalić was politically harming the government and the HDZ.

Underlining that light would be shed all the way on all issues, Plenković said the HDZ was the strongest and the most responsible party and that everything that it was done was done with best intentions.

Plenković said he had not read the email correspondence between Dalić and the consultants and lawyers thoroughly. "I will take some time, I will read it, analyse it and after that I will comment on it," said Plenković.

Asked if seeking responsibility he was referring to would have to wait until 10 July when a settlement in Agrokor was expected to be reached or if he was ready to act before that, Plenković said: "We will asses it." Asked who this would depend on, Plenković said: "On me."
