ZAGREB, March 4, 2020 – Police said on Wednesday that they had identified the perpetrator who had recently smashed windows on the Zagreb eye clinic owned by ophthalmologist Nikica Gabrić, who attracted public attention by confessing that he is a member of Freemasons.
A 37-year-old man was identified and taken into police custody on the suspicion that he had damaged the clinic on 24 February following media reports about Gabrić’s membership in a Freemason lodge.
Gabrić has been in the limelight since his recent public dispute with former Chief State Prosecutor Dražen Jelenić, which revealed that both men are Freemasons.
Jelenić resigned on 19 February, after he himself confirmed that he is a Freemason and accused Dr Gabrić of having tried to influence a preliminary investigation into three reporters who allegedly blackmailed the ophthalmologist demanding that he give them HRK 200,000 or they would publish photographs of a ceremony of the Masonic lodge to which Gabrić belongs. As soon as Jelenić made that statement, Gabrić dismissed it as false.
