Conflict of Interest Commission still hasn't received all requested documents in Karamarko case

The Conflict of Interest Commission has still not received all requested documents concerning allegations that First Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Karamarko was in a conflict of interest because his wife was in a business relationship with a consultant for the Hungarian oil and gas group MOL.

"We still don't have all the necessary documents for making a decision, so we have requested additional documentation and submissions. I cannot be more specific at this point about what we requested from whom because that might compromise the procedure," Conflict of Interest Commission chair Dalija Oreskovic told a press conference in Zagreb on Thursday.

She expressed hope that all the documents would be submitted in time so that the Commission could decide on the matter before the expiry of the deadline for a vote of no confidence in Karamarko in Parliament.

The motion for a vote of no confidence was filed by the strongest opposition Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the vote should take place by June 18.
