Elizabeta Madjarevic Suspended and Pulled from Croatian Embassy

Lauren Simmonds

As Index writes on the 19th of August, 2019, Croatian diplomat Elizabeta Madjarevic, whose xenophobic, racist and homophobic texts on social networks were first uncovered and reported by Index, has been suspended and withdrawn from her position at the Croatian Embassy in Berlin.

In addition, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs’ inspection suggested, and as Jutarnji list reports, the most severe disciplinary measure should be imposed on her, which is complete dismissal.

To briefly recall, Elizabeta Madjarevic championed the idea of a ”pure” and “white Europe”, expressed xenophobic and homophobic views, claimed she was against the idea of universal human rights and at one time accused German Chancellor Angela Merkel of suffering from a “lack of her own culture”.

The Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (MVEP) swiftly responded to Index’s report and promised action, stating that diplomats are supposed to comply with Croatia’s official policies.

Croatia’s responsibility to protect its reputation abroad has seen severe action taken against Elizabeta Madjarevic.
