ZAGREB, November 7, 2020 – A section of the second floor of Zagreb’s Dubrava Clinical Hospital where no patients are accommodated was left without electricity for about an hour and a half of Saturday after the switch cabinet was believed to have been damaged on purpose, the hospital’s acting director Ivica Luksic said, adding that the police have been informed.
“This is no accident, because smashing the cabinet door and heavily damaging the massive electric switch requires intent, time and some heavy-duty tools. In short, this can be considered intentional damage, and I hope the police will establish the facts and identify those responsible,” Luksic said in a statement.
Luksic said that security had been stepped up following a similar power outage at the hospital on November 1. He said he had informed Health Minister Vili Beros and the chairman of the hospital’s governing board and state secretary at the Health Ministry, Silvio Basic, of the latest incident.
