As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the brand new mayor of Oroslavje, Viktor Simunic, who took over power from HDZ two weeks ago, announced that the former government in the city had turned off the free Oroslavje internet.

Upon arriving to work in the morning, Simunic was shocked the learn that there was no internet connection on any city computer.

”Last week, we asked the former government for all of the data in order to access the internet, as well as all the keys to the lockers. We didn’t receive the data, the Oroslavje internet was cut off, and the keys were brought to the city administration only this morning.

The project, for which we all paid over 800 thousand kuna, was shut down. Since they deleted our database, unfortunately we don’t even know who used the internet or how many users there are on it.

The following is a list of inventories and analysis of the situation, and we’ll inform you about everything, but unfortunately we cannot solve the problem immediately due to its complexity. So I’d like to ask you for your understanding and patience.

I understand the anger and resentment, however this was not my decision.

I’m asking everyone who invested their funds in the equipment and used the free Oroslavje internet to contact the city’s e-mail: [email protected],” wrote Simunic on Facebook following the bizarre incident following HDZ’s recent loss in Oroslavje.
