Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, April 4, 2020 – The Croatian Pensioners’ Union (SUH) on Friday most strongly condemned member of parliament Ivan Pernar for making statements against elderly persons in the context of the coronavirus epidemic.

The union says that the MP has called for lifting restrictions that were imposed to curb the spread of the disease, explaining that elderly people have to die of something anyway.

SUH notes that Pernar has been conducting an opinion poll about the coronavirus pandemic on his Facebook wall, claiming that restrictions introduced to help fight the coronavirus have economically destroyed the country and its citizens and stripped young people of their basic human rights and freedoms.

Pernar also says that around 500,000 people die of the flu worldwide every year and that all of them were more or less close to death and would have died a few days, weeks or months later if they had not contracted the flu, SUH says, describing Pernar as an exhibitionist who discriminates against the elderly and exerts influence on young people whose health, too, is threatened by the coronavirus, and calling on the public to condemn his statements as hate speech.
