Deputy Mayor of Split Bojan Ivošević has submitted a misdemeanor report to the Split police against Prime Minister Andrej Plenković for insulting and belittling state bodies, specifically the president Zoran Milanović. This comes after Ivošević himself was sanctioned by police for the same offense, receiving a fine of 700 euros after he called police officers “crazy” and “not normal” while trying to prevent the illegal felling of a tree in Glagoljaška Street in Split.
Ivošević announced the misdemeanor report against Plenković on Facebook, stating that he decided to test if the police are equally diligent in addressing insults against other state authorities. He explained that he filed the complaint against the Prime Minister for insulting and belittling the President of the Republic of Croatia, Zoran Milanović. Ivošević expressed his belief that Mayor Ante Balov will act similarly to previous cases and issue a misdemeanor order against the Prime Minister for his derogatory remarks about the President of the Republic of Croatia.
The announcement indicates that the Deputy Mayor is taking a stand against perceived insults and belittling of state authorities, calling for accountability and consistent enforcement of laws regarding such behavior.
