As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, it should be noted that, as hinted at above, President Zoran Milanovic has repeatedly warned that his Office will not require anyone to present a valid digital Croatian covid certificate when enteting, which is a move made by the National Civil Protection Directorate that the Croatian President considers to be stupid. The reality now looks decidedly different.

According to Novi list, Nikola Jelic, a spokesman for the Office of the President, confirmed that the epidemiological measure adopted by the National Civil Protection Directorate was applied in Pantovcak despite opposition from some officials, including Milanovic himself, at least if we look at what he has said about the measure.

“Members of the Honorary Protection Battalion at the entrance to the Office of the President are requesting valid digital Croatian covid certificates from each of our employees, as well as from visitors. As for the employees in the Office of the President, this isn’t a problem for us because 95 percent of them have been fully vaccinated, which puts us well above the national level,” Jelic assured.

When asked how it was that President Zoran Milanovic’s announcements that he would not “harass people” about digital Croatian covid certificates failed to come to fruition, Jelic said that the president never said that he intended to break the law.

“He spoke exclusively about inspectors, and as I’ve said, digital Croatian covid certificates are regularly checked in various places in this country, so there is no real need for inspectors to come at all, and of course, that means there’s no need for them to come and punish the head of the Office, either,” concluded spokesman Jelic.
