ZAGREB, Sept 24 (Hina) – The government is considering a security clearance requirement for officeholders as part of a package of anti-corruption measures, the Minister of Physical Planning, Construction and State Assets, Darko Horvat, told the press on Thursday.

“Work is ongoing on an anti-corruption package, and the Minister of the Interior, Davor Bozinovic, and the Minister of Justice and Public Administration, Ivan Malenica, will inform you about it in due course,” Horvat said before a cabinet meeting when asked about the security vetting of government officials in light of the JANAF corruption case.

Horvat said that as far as he was concerned, security checks could be carried out every six months.

Minister Malenica recalled that security clearance was no longer required after the law was amended in 2012. He said that the matter would be discussed by the task force in charge of drawing up the anti-corruption strategy. “Something should definitely be done about it,” Malenica said.

Stressing that she had nothing against security checks, Culture Minister Nina Obuljen-Korzinek said that she had undergone security vetting when she first became an assistant minister. She added that the press should ask President Zoran Milanovic why he had scrapped this requirement when he was prime minister.
