The Croatian government on Wednesday relieved national chief of police Vlado Dominic and temporarily replaced him by his deputy, Zvonimir Vnucec, the Ministry of the Interior announced.
The post of chief of the Zagreb Police Department will be filled by Zeljko Prsa, who has so far served as head of the General Crimes Division at the Police Directorate. He will replace Goran Burusic.
Antun Cavic, who has so far served in the Economic Crimes Division at the Zagreb Police Department, will take over as chief of the Crime Prevention Division, replacing Danijel Zugel.
Zvonimir Petrovic, who has so far served as head of the General Crimes Division, will replace Zeljko Dolacki as head of the Organised Crime Division, while Damir Juras, departmental head at a disciplinary court in Split, will replace Stjepan Jurenec as head of the Internal Affairs Division.
The appointments were made after Dominic, Burusic, Zugel and Jurenec resigned following a break-in at the Criminal Investigation Department headquarters in Zagreb, which occurred during the night between Sunday and Monday. Dolacki, whose office contained the safe that was broken into, was fired and could face disciplinary action. Two kilograms of gold and 280,000 euros were stolen from the safe.
