Arrest of Zagreb City Mayor Mr. Milan Bandić

Transparency International Croatia would like to stress that the recent arrest of the Mayor of the City of Zagreb Mr. Milan Bandic and CEO of Zagreb Holding Mr. Slobodan Ljubicic are again proof that no one is above the law.

"The arrest of the Mayor of the City of Zagreb Mr. Milan Bandic is an epilogue to the numerous scandals that have been attached to Mr. Bandic’s name for many years now. Considering that, at this moment, the public is provided with scarce information regarding the crimes Mr. Bandic, as well as the other detainees, are being officially charged for, Transparency International Croatia cannot comment in detail this overall event. However, TIH would like to express its satisfaction with the work of USKOK and its fight against corruption in the Croatian capital. City of Zagreb and the Zagreb Holding company should operate transparently without opening the slightest room for corruption and other crimes.” said Mrs. Davorka Budimir, president of TIC.



Transparency International Hrvatska ističe kako su uhićenja gradonačelnika Grada Zagreba Milana Bandića i predsjednika uprave Zagrebačkog holdinga Slobodana Ljubičića novi dokaz da nitko nije iznad zakona.

Uhićenje gradonačelnika Grada Zagreba Milana Bandića dat će epilog aferama koje su se uz njegovo ime vezivale godinama. Budući da u ovom trenutku javnost raspolaže s premalo informacija o tome za koja su kaznena djela Bandić i ostali uhićenici osumnjičeni, ne možemo detaljno komentirati događaj, ali možemo izraziti zadovoljstvo radom USKOK-a na suzbijanju korupcije u hrvatskoj metropoli. Grad Zagreb i Zagrebački holding trebaju poslovati transparentno bez otvaranja i najmanjeg prostora za korupciju i ostala kaznena djela“, poručila je Davorka Budimir, predsjednica TIH-a.

The right to information is vital for preventing corruption. When citizens can access key facts and data from governments, it is more difficult to hide abuses of power and other illegal activities - governments can be held accountable.
