“Is it really possible that (Prime Minister) Plenković’s scandalous attack on Lalić is so much more significant than (President) Zoran Milanović’s much dirtier continuous attacks on me in the past months, and in the former case you reacted in the blink of an eye, while in the latter not at all?” asked Puhovski in an open letter, adding that despite his years and experience, he is truly shocked by the statement the SNH co-signed today.
“I don’t know if it’s about likes/dislikes, ideology, stupidity or rudeness, but I didn’t expect that from you at least,” Puhovski told the SNH.
The HND and the SNH said earlier on Monday that they strongly condemned PM Andrej Plenković’s attack on the media, interference in the editorial policy of commercial broadcasters RTL, Nova TV and N1 and criticism of the reporters and pundits covering campaigns in the run-up to the recent local election and the elections.
PM Andrej Plenković then said HND president Hrvoje Zovko’s statement was “rude and inappropriate” and said he was “much quieter, slower and more evasive when it comes to criticising Milanović”.
