Ivica Todorić Leaves Jail: I’ll Win Power and Lead Croatia in Right Way

Ivica Todorić paid his million euro sum and has now officially been released from Remetinec prison. How did he come upon such a large amount of cash, you ask? No idea, I respond. In the paradoxical land that is Croatia, everything is impossible and at the same time nothing is impossible, let’s just say that.

Now he’s free, at least for now, the former Agrokor boss has one or two new ambitions and obviously needs a new career path to venture down now that he’s no longer at the seat of the country’s largest privately owned company. What better path to take than the one he says ruined him and then conducted a witch hunt against him? Yes, politics.

Todorić’s bail fee was set at 7.5 million kuna, and the catch was that it couldn’t be paid in any other way except cold hard cash. His lawyers deemed this clause to be a tricky one to bypass, and Todorić’s wish to be free seemed to have had cold water poured all over it, until yesterday when he managed to come up with a million euros in cash. You know, as you do.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 21st of November, 2018, upon being asked just how he came upon a massive one million euros in cash, Ivica Todorić explained that a lot of people who contacted him themselves were ready and willing to help out with the bail fee. 

The first morning after leaving Remetinec prison, Ivica Todorić went to get his hair done. According to a report from 24sata, just as he did before leaving for London last year, Todorić went to one of the capital city’s most well known hair salons, located on Bauer street (Ulica Antuna Bauera).

”I’ve come back with the ”old-new” hairstyle. As far as bail is concerned, a lot of people helped me out, and they got in touch with me themselves. It’s not fair for me to talk all about that now, everything will come to light. I’ll win power and start turning Croatia in the right direction, I’m going to the elections,” said Todorić for 24sata.
