Croatia real estate

Dajla parish property goes back to Croatian state

Croatian Times

The property of Dajla parish that has been at the center of a dispute between Pula-Porec diocese and Italian Benedictine order will be returned to the Croatian state, the Minister of Justice Drazen Bosnjakovic has confirmed.

Bosnjakovic annulled the Istrian County Office of Property Rights decisions from 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2000 that gave the once state-property back to Dajla parish because they should not have been dealt with under administrative law procedures.

Bosnjakovic reasons that the property was not supposed to have been given to the parish considering that its previous owners were the Italian Benedictine order or Abbey of Praglia.

However they - as previous owners whose property was confiscated by Yugoslavia in 1947 - should have been compensated by Italy under Osimo treaty, which regulated many post-World War II disputes between the two states.

The property had once belonged to the order but was given to former Yugoslavia following World War II. Croatian independence lead to denationalisation, with property handed over to Porec-Pula diocese without prior approval from the Abbey of Praglia, the news site Vatican Insider explained. The rather convoluted case dragged in not only national church authorities and the Abbey, but also Croatian government and the Vatican.
