ZAGREB, March 15, 2018 – Public Administration Minister Lovro Kuščević said ahead of the government session on Thursday that Josipa Rimac, who was fined for conflict of interest, and Dalija Orešković, who used to be at the helm of the Conflict of Interest Commission that fined Rimac, would both work on a new bill regulating prevention of conflict of interest which, according to him, would result in a good draft proposal.

Kuščević told the press outside Government House that Rimac, former Knin mayor, who currently serves as a state secretary in his ministry, was at the helm of a task force entrusted with drawing up a new conflict of interest act, although the Conflict of Interest Commission had fined her with 4,000 kuna for failing to submit declaration of assets on time and for discrepancies between assets listed and the actual situation.

The task force consists of a number of experts from the Finance Ministry, the Public Administration Ministry and the academic community. Mrs Dalija Orešković is part of the team and I believe that cooperation between Mrs Orešković and Mrs Rimac would result in a good draft proposal, Kuščević said.

The ruling majority recently rejected to re-elect Orešković as Conflict of Interest Commission chairwoman.
