Ex-Minister Horvat Remanded in One Month’s Custody

Total Croatia News

Updated on:

Horvat, who was arrested this morning, was remanded in custody so that he cannot tamper with witnesses, but not due to the risk of repeating the crime since he was relieved of duty at his own request by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.

The USKOK anti-corruption office, at whose request Horvat was remanded in custody, proposed questioning 11 witnesses, including eight employees of the Regional Development and EU Funds Ministry.

Horvat’s attorney Vladimir Terešak said after the hearing that his client denied being guilty and that all the decisions he signed were made by his then aide Ana Mandac, another suspect in this case.
