Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, October 15, 2018 – A verdict in the trial against Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandić and his two co-defendants in a case dubbed “public stands”, in which they allegedly defrauded the city budget of 308,000 kuna by having enabled the association “In the Name of the Family” to use stands for collecting signatures for a referendum free of charge, will be handed down on Friday, the president of the panel of judges, Zdravko Majerović, said on Monday.

All the defendants pleaded not guilty and during closing arguments the defence teams said that the defendants executed their powers in a legal manner and in accordance with the usual practice.

The prosecution insisted in its concluding speech that Bandić acted out of private and political interests.

On the other hand, Krešimir Krsnik, a counsel for defendant Ivica Lovrić, said that it was not on the prosecution to assess if somebody does anything out of political interests.
