“Croatian Bureau for Combating Corruption and Organized Crime (Uskok) dismissed the complaints against Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, former Economy Minister Martina Dalic, former Agrokor crisis manager Ante Ramljak, and Finance Minister Zdravko Maric in the Hotmail affair, the state attorney’s office said on Monday.

The complaints were filed by political parties Zivi Zid and Slobodna Hrvatska in May on suspicion of trading in influence and abuse of inside information. The prosecution said ‘there were no elements of those criminal acts.’

Uskok reported on its website that ‘the filed complaints, based on the texts and e-mails published on the Index.hr portal,’ said that the persons ‘were using their official authority, purposely deceived the Croatian public on the situation in the Agrokor Group, and illegally revealed inside information, enabling legal and physical persons to gain financial benefits.’” (N1)
