Plenković Stands by His Controversial Minister

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 25, 2019 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said on Tuesday that the whole “guilt” of Public Administration Minister Lovro Kuščević was actually his omission to enter his two properties in the local geodetic registry, and that since the very beginning his cabinet had been exposed to criticism orchestrated by “prompters”.

“The fact that somebody has omitted to register two properties in the geodetic registry is omission. However, this omission does not have such proportions to make us question his (Kuščević’s) political and human integrity,” Plenković said, while responding to questions from the press after a wreath-laying ceremony on the occasion of Croatian Statehood Day.

Plenković said that he had talked lately with Kuščević about the recent developments and media reports, and insisted that arguments given by Kuščević and his declaration of assets show that Kuščević could only be blamed for failing to register the properties with the local geodetic office.

In this context, Plenković noted that Kuščević was the 10th minister from his cabinet who has become the target of some people whom he labelled as prompters who choose an opportune moment to disseminate information they find interesting to media in a bid to create an impression that there are problems.

“Those prompters have clear political intentions of causing destabilisation, destruction and collapse,” the premier said adding that since the very beginning his cabinet has been faced with such attempts.
