The law on systematically important companies will be discussed on Friday, Parliament Speaker Bozo Petrov said on Thursday night after a meeting at the government at which the draft of the law was finalised, N1 television reported.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and Economy Minister Martina Dalic met at the government to discuss the draft law, after which they were joined by Petrov and the political secretary of his Bridge party, Nikola Grmoja.
"We talked about a law that would protect the economic system... We are not drawing up this law because of Mr Todoric but to protect the economic system and jobs. We can't allow to have any one company endanger the system so much that we can expect a recession because of it," Petrov said, referring to Ivica Todoric's heavily indebted Agrokor retailer.
Asked why he had filed a criminal complaint against Todoric, Petrov said that what the media had reported raised suspicion. "If Todoric is clean and everything is alright, then the institutions should do their job."
