As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the decision to move Tomislav Horvatincic from Lipovica prison to the facility at Krapinske Toplice was made at the suggestion of the penitentiary manager, after the Hospital for Persons Deprived of Liberty stated that it could not provide him with the adequate medical care he currently requires.
After being transferred from Remetinec (a prison in Zagreb) to the penitentiary in Lipovica back on September the 7th, he spent ten days in isolation in the open part, which is actually eight kilometres away from the penitentiary itself. Tomislav Horvatincic was then transported to the Special Hospital in Krapinske Toplice on Monday to be provided with the medical treatment he needs.
He was transported to the Krapinske Toplice location accompanied by police officers.
To briefly recall some of the most recent developments in the very long saga surrounding Tomislav Horvatincic, the entrepreneur asked for the postponement of the execution of his prison sentence until the end of the year precisely because of his apparently quite rapidly deteriorating state of health, but his request wasn’t granted.
After spending 21 days in rehabilitation, a competent doctor can freely suggest an extension of the rehabilitation process, and he can ask for it to continue for up to six months at most, because that is the right that the law gives him regardless of his wrongdoings. If it is estimated that he would need a longer rehabilitation period in addition to the 21 days he is initially entitled to, he may be granted a suspended sentence.
Tomislav Horvatincic’s lawyer, Velimir Dosen, revealed that he actually didn’t know that his client was going to Krapinske Toplice, Jutarnji list reports.
