Bridge party MP Miro Bulj said on Wednesday his party did not want to be in charge of the supervision of the Security and Intelligence Agency (SOA), but that it insisted that SOA be led by professionals and that a review would determine if that was the case.
"Bridge does not want the supervision. Bridge wants professionals behaving professionally. Security services are one of the most important services when it comes to national security. They must not serve party or private interests," Bulj told reporters in the Croatian Parliament, asked to comment on media headlines that by surveilling controversial sports manager Zdravko Mamic, SOA had accidentally wired and put under surveillance Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, of which she had not been notified.
Bulj declined to comment on the announced replacement of SOA director Dragan Lozancic.
