Bauk entered parliament without a mask, which is not permitted and which was remarked on by Deputy Speaker Ante Sanader (HDZ).
SDP’s MP explained why he took his mask off.
“I violated Article 293b of the Rules of Procedure because I took off my mask. I did so in protest at the flagrant and rude violation of measures at Mirogoj on Wednesday, sponsored by the national and local COVID-19 crisis management teams,” Bauk said.
He asked Sanader to issue him with a warning so that “at least someone would be penalised” for yesterday’s violation of epidemiological measures.
“I won’t issue you with a warning for yesterday, but I will for what you did today, you violated the Rules of Procedures,” Sanader responded.
