Businessman sentenced to 20 months in jail for boating accident with two dead

The Municipal Court in the coastal city of Sibenik on Wednesday found Croatian businessman Tomislav Horvatincic guilty and sentenced him to a conditional sentence of 20 months in prison for causing a boating accident off Primosten in 2011, in which two Italian nationals were killed.

The accident occurred near the isle of Maslinovik in the Primosten archipelago on 16 August 2011, when Horvatincic's speedboat crashed into another boat, killing an Italian married couple who were aboard.

Horvatincic is also to cover litigation costs in the amount of HRK 167,365.

Both the prosecution and the defence said they would appeal.
