MOST Criticizes Government on Agrokor and LNG Terminal

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, February 4, 2018 – Opposition MOST party leader Božo Petrov said in Opatija on Saturday that Economy Minister Martina Dalić should know, by virtue of her office, everything that was going on in the Agrokor company and that Prime Minister Andrej Plenković should say what would happen with the company now.

Petrov made the statement in a comment on the hiring of domestic consultancies, in one of which Agrokor’s emergency administrator Ante Ramljak used to work, as subcontractors to AlixPartners in the process of Agrokor’s restructuring.

In an interview with Nova TV on Friday, Dalić said that it was not Ramljak but Alastair Beveridge of AlixPartners who chose Ramljak’s former company as a subcontractor in the restructuring process. Ramljak enjoys my trust as long as he conducts the restructuring process in line with the law, Dalić said.

Asked whether MOST considered as acceptable the project to build a liquefied natural gas terminal at Omisalj on the island of Krk, Petrov said that shortcomings that had been identified should be removed so as to prevent any risks and problems for local residents. If those shortcomings are removed, I will support the LNG project as it can result in lower gas prices for consumers, said Petrov.

Bridge MP Ines Strenja Linić said that Croatia needed energy independence but that the proposed floating LNG terminal was unacceptable. The initial terminal project has been changed and that can’t be done without citizens’ consent, she said.

The leadership of the MOST party, its members and supporters met in Opatija for a convention at which the party will discuss its proposals and bills that have been or will be put forward in the coming period. The Opatija convention is the second of the kind and MOST is to hold five such meetings around the country.

Petrov told reporters that the purpose of the conventions was to address voters with a wish to show that it was possible to organise Croatia as an efficient, just and transparent country.
