Uljanik Shipyard Workers Start Receiving Notices of Employment Termination

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 20, 2019 – More than 1,100 workers of the Pula-based Uljanik shipyard started receiving notices of employment termination on Monday after bankruptcy proceedings were launched on May 13.

The workers will come for work during the 30-day notice period, and this will be added to their years of service, according to union leader Boris Cerovac.
In the meantime, the County Court in the northern Adriatic city of Rijeka on Monday ordered the release of six suspects in the Uljanik fraud case from investigative detention.

The six suspects were remanded in custody because there was a risk that they might try to influence the witnesses.

Court spokesman Zoran Sršen said that there were no more grounds for detention because all the witnesses had been interviewed during the investigation.

The six suspects are former Uljanik Group management board chair Gianni Rossanda, former Uljanik Group management board members Marinko Brgić and Veljko Grbac, former 3. Maj shipyard board chair Maksimilijan Percan, former Uljanik Plovidba director Dragutin Pavletić, and former Uljanik shipyard director Silvan Kranjc.

Also suspected in this case are eight other persons as well as the Uljanik Plovidba company.

They are suspected of committing financial wrongdoing and state aid fraud at the Uljanik and 3. Maj shipyards between January 2010 and mid-October 2017, whereby the two companies and the state budget were defrauded of 1.2 billion kuna (162 million euro).
