Todorić’s blog is inciting reactions, or is it?
Ivica Todorić appears to have found his voice, via the Internet, and although his blog definitely does make a good read (guilty pleasure, sorry), not everyone is jumping for joy about his methods of self expression.
Todorić’s blog has grown in popularity (not always for the most positive of reasons) in recent weeks and is the means by which the former Agrokor boss voices his thoughts, views and opinions of various individuals. Those thoughts, views and opinions are rarely positive, and those individuals they’re aimed at tend to be in rather high positions of political power. An uncomfortable situation for all, to say the very least. A sh*t show, one could even say.
So far, Todorić has taken aim at Deputy PM Martina Dalić, boldly accusing her of scheming, lying, threatening him, his family and witnesses, as well as expressing his personal excitement at the idea of a lawsuit against her with which all of her apparent underhand behaviour will allegedly be revealed.
He has aimed his proverbial gun at Agrokor’s government appointed extraordinary commissioner, Ante Ramljak, accusing him of having got his ex colleagues and buddies from his past endeavours involved to oversee the processes in Agrokor following the activation of the Lex Agrokor law.
While Prime Minister Andrej Plenković has found himself in the firing line, he’s managed to get off quite lightly so far, well, sort of. Aside from being accused of activating Lex Agrokor ”without having any conditions prescribed by the law to do so”, the most damning accusation he has received to date is one of amnesia.
Much like a viral video on YouTube that incites numerous other reaction videos, the cyber-slow-dance lead by Ivica Todorić and his laptop, followed by government reactions to the latest of his electronic fury splashed across media portals and newspapers has become the new ”thing”. It would seem, however, despite being accused of lying, cheating, covering things up and suffering from amnesia while in Estonia (don’t ask, just click), Andrej Plenković has vowed to not react to Todorić’s new theories and insinuations every day.
As 24sata reports on the 2nd of October, 2017, following the session of the Presidency and the National Council of HDZ, PM Andrej Plenković stated that a number of current topics had been discussed, among which were obvious things such as the activities of the Parliament, a 100 day review of the Government, the economic situation, and more.
When asked by a journalist about the formation of the Agrokor Investigative Commission, Plenković pointed out that HDZ was for the Investigation Commission, but without SDP’s proposed conditions.
Regarding Ivica Todorić’s allegations at the expense of the Government, Plenkovic said he did not intend to respond to the new-found blogger’s accusations and insinuations every day.
”The government has a very clear path of two fundamental interests. One is the protection of the economy and the financial system, which implies workplaces within the company [Agrokor], and in a number of companies associated with it. Another is the functioning of the legal state” stated the Prime Minister.
