Živi Zid MPs Clash with Parliament Security Guards

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, April 5, 2019 – Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković on Friday strongly condemned death threats by Živi Zid member of parliament Branimir Bunjac against parliament security guards who carried his party colleague Ivan Pernar out of the parliament chamber, saying that Bunjac’s threat that they “will not leave the parliament alive” was intolerable.

“Such scenes do not contribute to the parliament’s reputation, they are inappropriate and do not send the right message, especially to the youth, as to what appropriate behaviour is,” Jandroković told reporters, noting that as a society Croatia had to decide whether it would continue tolerating such behaviour.

Deputy speaker Milijan Brkić of the HDZ party on Thursday evening cautioned Živi Zid MP Pernar twice for speaking about a topic other than the one for which he was given the floor and which was on the agenda, namely an interpellation by the Social Democratic Party about the government’s work.

Pernar read psalms, calling on former prime minister and HDZ leader Ivo Sanader, who was taken into custody again yesterday following a Supreme Court ruling in a corruption case against him, to end his silence and speak up about the HDZ’s slush funds.

Brkić warned Pernar twice to stick to the subject of the debate but he ignored the request and Brkić eventually asked that he be removed from the session.

His party colleague Bunjac, who called out Brkić for ordering Pernar’s removal from the chamber, was also cautioned and banned from speaking until the end of the debate.
