Ante Ramljak hands over the responsibility of Agrokor to Fabris Peruško.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 29th of February, 2018, Agrokor’s now former extraordinary commissioner, Ante Ramljak, has handed over responsibility to the new extraordinary commissioner who was appointed on Tuesday by the Croatian Government, and who was later confirmed to be the ailing company’s new commissioner by the commercial court – Fabris Peruško.

Upon leaving Agrokor after leaving his position within Croatia’s big economic player, Ramljak said:

“How do I feel? Maybe even at ease from everything. When I arrived there 11 months ago, I found 6 kuna on the [Agrokor’s] account, on today’s account, there’s one billion and six million kuna. I wish Fabriz and Irena all the luck, I think they’ll do the job well, and I’ll think well about what I’ll do. I have no plans or ideas,” he told reporters.

What was crucial to his departure? “What was crucial, you’ll have to ask someone else,” Ramljak briefly responded. According to N1, he didn’t state whether or not it was Prime Minister’s behaviour that drove him to step down from his top position within Agrokor.

“There’s absolutely no bitterness. It’s a great transformation, a change in society, everyone knows that it wasn’t easy for the politicians and me to withstand it. If my sacrifice is needed to get this done, then I’ll accept that sacrifice and I really want us to succeed,” he stated.

As far as the manner in which he stepped down from his now previous position is concerned, he said, “I was expecting a lot of things, I didn’t have any illusions that this would go smoothly. Everyone knows what Agrokor and Todorić are in society, how omnipotent it was, we knew we’d have problems.”

When asked about DORH’s investigation against him, he said, “Ask DORH, I’m here and I’ve got no problem with it. I will stay in Zagreb, I won’t be going anywhere, everyone knows where I am.”

The ex government appointed extraordinary commissioner, who took up the role soon after the crisis within Croatia’s largest privately owned company went public, also revealed that he would no longer set foot in Agrokor.
