Sanader must be released from investigative custody by Nov 30, court rules

The Constitutional Court has decided that former Prime Minister Ivo Sanader must be released from investigative custody no later than November 30 unless the competent court delivers a new ruling on investigative custody by then, the Constitutional Court announced on Tuesday.

Croatia's highest judicial authority has concluded that the Supreme Court unlawfully extended investigative custody for Sanader on September 30 by annulling the trial court's verdict in the Fimi Media corruption case and returning the case to the Zagreb County Court for retrial.

The Constitutional Court noted that its ruling solely dealt with procedural matters relating to the extension of investigative custody for the accused and not with his guilt.
