Court postpones decision on Kalmeta indictment

The Zagreb County Court on Friday could not decide on an indictment issued against former transport minister and incumbent Zadar Mayor Bozidar Kalmeta whom the national anti-corruption office USKOK indicted together with 12 other persons for syphoning over HRK 15 million and EUR 850,000 from two state-owned road companies during Kalmeta's term as minister in the period from 2008 to 2011, and the reason for postponement of the decision were procedural errors.

The new session of a panel of judges that can uphold, reject the indictment or send it back to the prosecutors to amend it is scheduled for 2 June.

Kalmeta's lawyer Kresimir Vilajtovic has recently told Hina that there is no legal evidence to corroborate the indictment issued by USKOK in June 2015.
