Speaking to the press, he said “it’s necessary to look into how and why that happened, who did the job, who supervised, who issued the final certificates of occupancy.”

Plenkovic said that at the moment he did not have more details and that he would ask Construction Minister Darko Horvat and the state secretary in the State Reconstruction and Housing Office, Nikola Mazar.

“It’s not good that there are buildings which should be stronger than they are. Everything that should, will be looked into,” he said, regardless of responsibility. “The reconstruction that Croatia carried out was a big process. If some buildings were not built up to code, that should be looked into.”

As for the role of incumbent Sisak-Moslavina County prefect Ivo Zinic, who was in charge of reconstruction in the area in question in 1995, Plenkovic said he was sure Zinic could provide all the necessary explanations.

Mazar said more than 156,000 family houses were reconstructed after the Homeland War, with works lasting from 1995 to 2000 and over 150 companies involved.

“Everything was done under the Reconstruction Act, the Building Act. There are documents on contractors, supervisors, architects, owners, users… There were certain guarantees and deadlines,” he said.
