“The government and opposition parties are at loggerheads over the future of the parliamentary commission, established to investigate the causes of the Agrokor debt crisis. It remains unclear what will happen on Wednesday morning when the commission’s next session is scheduled to begin.
While in Slavonski Brod today, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković again reiterated his HDZ party’s view that the parliamentary investigative commission established to investigate the causes of the Agrokor debt crisis, should immediately be disbanded now that the criminal investigation into Agrokor’s founder, his two sons and twelve others has officially begun: ‘Clause 4 is completely clear. I thought that our colleagues in the Croatian parliament had learned about the competencies of this whole situation. Already a few times and very clearly our opinion has been stated. Therefore I don’t see in what way or in any way, anyone and especially not the Croatian parliament, which adopts legislation, can interpret the law to be contrary to what it very clearly states and that is that once legal proceedings commence, the investigative commission immediately halts its work,’ said Plenkovic” (Voice of Croatia)
