The chairman of the Parliamentary Home Affairs and National Security Committee, Ranko Ostojic of the Social Democrats (SDP), said on Saturday that the Chief State Prosecutor's Office must investigate the allegations made by President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic that former head of the Security and Intelligence Agency (SOA) Dragan Lozancic was a private intelligence officer for former prime minister Zoran Milanovic.
According to him, if the Chief State Prosecutor's Office fails to do so, the investigation should be launched by a parliamentary commission of inquiry.
Ostojic recalled that the Prosecutor's Office had promptly investigated allegations that he, in his capacity of interior minister, had ordered illegal surveilling of Bridge party chief Bozo Petrov.
Commenting on the case of ex-SOA chief Lozancic and his replacement, Ostojic said the case had made a stain on the entire intelligence system.
Ostojic underlined he could not accept President Grabar-Kitarovic's allegations Lozancic was a private intelligence officer for Milanovic.
