Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, January 29, 2020 – Assistant Health Minister Vili Beroš, nominated by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković to succeed the just-dismissed Minister Milan Kujundžić, said on Wednesday morning that later in the day he would enter some changes in his Declaration of Assets, which happened in the last two years.

Beroš told the N1 commercial broadcaster that those changes had happened since he became the assistant minister, explaining that he had refinanced two loans taken in 2008 and 2016 and was now paying them at a more favourable interest rate arranged by the Croatian Medical Chamber for its members.

In 2016, he and his wife borrowed 50,000 euro from Erste Bank and in 2008 they took a loan of 75,550 in euro Addiko Bank.

Beroš also explained that since he became assistant minister, he reduced his activities as a court expert in neurosurgery and some other additional jobs, which had impacted his annual income.

Beroš will therefore meet the Commission’s chairwoman, Nataša Novaković, to add those changes to his Declaration of Assets.

The current declaration shows that Beroš and his wife own a property appraised at 1.5 million kuna in the Zagreb suburb of Rudeš, as well as a 50-square-metre flat in the suburb of Vrapče.

He also reports that he has inherited a part of a property in Jelsa on the island of Hvar.

He and his wife possess two cars, one appraised at 75,000 kuna and the other at 120,000 kuna, and he is a co-owner of a speedboat.

The declaration of assets shows that Beroš and his wife, who works in a kindergarten, have managed to save 25,000 euro.

According to Beroš’s CV, he was born in Split in 1964, is a university professor and has been employed at the department of neurosurgery of the University Hospital Centre “Sestre Milosrdnice” in Zagreb.

He is a member of the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies Center of Excellence for Neurosurgical Training.

In 1989, he graduated from the University of Zagreb Medical School summa cum laude.

Beroš, a member of the ruling Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), is the Vice President and founder of the Croatian Society for Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery.
