Minister Cacic could avoid jail, suggests lawyer

Croatian Times

Croatian Deputy Prime Minister Radimir Cacic who has been sentenced in absentia to 11 months in jail in Hungary for killing two people in a car accident could still avoid going to jail.

Lawyer Damir Primorac who is not involved in the case told daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija how the minister of economy who resigned on Wednesday could escape ending up behing the bars.

"He would first need to demand from the court in Hungary that he serve his sentence in Croatia and I see no reason why they would not allow that.

"Once under the juristdiction of Croatian authorities he could expect that they treat his penalty as conditional so he would not end up in jail unless committing the same crime again, Damir Primorac explained.

The court in Kaposvar, Hungary first sentenced Radimir Cacic to a conditional sentence of 22 months, but this was overturned by a higher court.
