Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 4, 2020 – The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) court of honour in its Sibenik-Knin branch on Thursday afternoon decided to expel former state secretary Josipa Rimac and Knin councillor Marinko Tokmakcija from the party after it had earlier in the morning requested more information and an explanation of the entire situation.

Rimac and Tokmakcija were unconditionally expelled from the HDZ, the head of the county branch of the ruling party, Nediljko Dujic, told a press conference explaining that the court of honour did not decide on disciplinary measures this morning because he was not there to motion the procedure.

He added that the meeting however continued in the afternoon and a unanimous decision was reached to unconditionally expel Rimac and Tokmakcija from the party.

“The decision to unconditionally expel Rimac and Tokmacija from the party was adopted for well known reasons that have occurred over the past few days,” said Dujic.

Zagreb County Court on Saturday ordered one-month investigative custody for Rimac and six other suspects in the wind park corruption case.

After an extensive police operation in a case involving the construction of a wind park, the USKOK anti-corruption agency on Saturday launched an investigation into 13 business people and state officials, including Rimac, suspected of influence peddling, abuse of office and authority, and bribery.
