Deputy Mayor Bojan Ivošević has filed a misdemeanor report against Prime Minister Andrej Plenković for insulting and belittling state bodies, particularly President Zoran Milanović. This action comes after Ivošević himself was fined 700 euros by the police for a similar offense earlier in the month.
Ivošević made the accusation after he spoke to police officers trying to prevent the illegal felling of a tree in Glagoljaška Street in Split, during which he called them “crazy” and “not normal.” The Deputy Mayor then took to Facebook to inform the public about his misdemeanor report and expressed his dissatisfaction with how the police had handled his own case. He stated that he wanted to test if they would respond equally to insults against other state authorities.
In his announcement, Ivošević also expressed his belief that Mayor Ante Balov will act in the same way as in similar cases and issue a misdemeanor order against the Prime Minister for his remarks about President Milanović.
