ZAGREB, Sept 17, 2020 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic on Thursday commented today’s arrests and preliminary investigations in the JANAF oil pipeline operator, supporting the authorities in all their actions and saying that everyone found guilty would answer for their crimes.
Speaking at a cabinet meeting, he said this was “yet another very clear message (that) the task of all bodies, notably judicial bodies, DORH, USKOK, PNUSKOK and the police, is to do an impartial and independent job and thoroughly investigate and prosecute everyone suspected of taking part in corruption activities.”
“This message of the fight against corruption is constant and continuous,” Plenkovic said, adding that his government was proving that it advocated fighting corruption through “concrete action.”
He supported the State Prosecutor’s Office (DORH), the USKOK anti-corruption office and the PNUSKOK police anti-corruption office “in all activities which are independent and free of any influence or pressure on their work.
“Everyone found guilty… will answer for a certain act,” Plenkovic said, adding that he would say more about this morning’s police operation after learning more about it.
“We have a principled position, very firm and clear, we stand behind it and that’s will be our policy.”
