Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, July 28, 2020 – Speaker Gordan Jandrokovic said on Tuesday the parliament presidency was agreed today about recommending that all MPs wear masks in the chamber and that he would continue to ask all to do so.

Speaking to the press after a presidency meeting, he said wearing masks was, for now, a recommendation and that, depending on developments, “we will see whether to ban those who don’t want to or avoid wearing a mask from being in the chamber.”

“I firmly believe everyone will listen to the recommendation because it doesn’t come from us but from experts,” said Jandrokovic. He added that as of September if the coronavirus situation deteriorated, stricter measures could be imposed.

Capak hasn’t become burden because of Hrebak case

Jandrokovic said he did not think that Krunoslav Capak, head of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, had become a burden because of the case of MP Dario Hrebak. He said Capak had been doing a good job from the start and that the criticisms against him were wrong.

He would not comment on the possibility of President Zoran Milanovic being brought into an awkward situation at the August 5 anniversary of Operation Storm.

“He is responsible for his statements, sometimes also for the problems those statements cause. The government and the prime minister have done a lot both for veterans and for a dignified marking of Storm’s 25-year anniversary, so any booing would be inappropriate and I don’t expect it. I think something like that certainly won’t happen.”

As for representatives of the authorities attending the Grubori commemoration, he said they had neither discussed it nor made a decision.
