Croatia loses 100 million Euros due to corruption

Croatian Times

The Croatian government has added up all corruption affairs bringing the total of the money stolen from the state to 750 million kunas (101.5 million Euros), the daily Jutarnji List writes.

The government included these totals in its third and latest report on progress in fulfilling all measures specified in the European Union negotiations chapter 23 on judiciary. The report will be presented to the ambassadors of European Union countries today (Fri).

The report does not contain concrete cases apart from several that illustrate the government’s determination to put an end to corruption in the highest places, such as the case of former Prime Minister, Ivo Sanader.

The document contains all judiciary measures implemented in the last 5-6 years.
The goal of the report is to prove the efficacy of the Croatian judiciary, and it is not common to list all the cases, the daily writes.

    Wow! 101.5 million Euros was stolen from our politicians this is the only strength that our government has it knows how to steal money!. Ivo Sanader refuses to be tried in Croatia because of the judicial system that he may not get a fair trail, ahh wasn't he the premier of Croatia for 6 years he could of done something to change this system. This just proves that the politicians agenda has nothing to do with the better of Croatia, their main goal is to steal, lie and manipulate the population end of story. Whether its HDZ, SDP or FU*K its all the same and even if a new party was formed for change by the time they get into parliment they will have been corrupted as well. Its a shame to live in a country where people don't care, where issues that need attention are avoided by this neverending distraction of the government getting into the EU. How many citizens get paid minimum salary and the rest cash under the table, yet those same people can't get a credit from the banks. How many citizens in the past 6-10 years still have the same pay, why is there not a cost of living and adjustments given to them??. How many citizens knowingly go to work that have not been paid in months for fear of losing their benefits, how many of the younger generation of students who are in university realize that they will not be able to find a good paying job. How many pensioners who you have surely seen are picking through garbage bins!!!! how many honorable war veterans (the ones that are genuine) are commiting suicide because they cannot support their families!!?? these are things that should be on the front news everyday to remind the government that while they were making fast deals and collecting kickbacks they forgot that they were elected in office for the citizens not for themselves. Obviously there cannot be a better political party nor politician but what I would like to see is on the voting ballot they put down "none of the above"! and have everyone vote for "none of the above" and have "none of the above" win. Who ever goes into office will know that he or she lost to "none of the above" and knowing that he or she just may give a damn since "none of the above" was chosen by the people and who ever came into office in substitution will try hard so that "none of the above" wins again.

      Jimmy, I see many point I would agree with. But my first question to you is; what are you doing for your country? Apart from complaining? Don't get me wrong, it is not cynically meant.
