Croatian Economy Chief Convicted in Fatal Hungarian Car Crash
The Kaposvar County Court on Friday found Croatian Deputy Prime Minister Radimir Cacic guilty of causing a traffic accident with two fatalities in Hungary in 2010, and gave him a 22-month suspended sentence with a probation of three years.
Commenting on Friday's Hungarian first-instance sentence against Croatian First Deputy Prime Minister Radimir Cacic for a traffic accident with two fatalities, opposition officials Jadranka Kosor and Dragutin Lesar said Cacic should resign, while Josip Leko of the ruling coalition said Cacic and his party should first state their opinion.
Lesar (Labour Party) said he could comment on the sentence only in the context of the political responsibility of a state official. "He was found guilty. I want to believe that the bar which the prime minister set so high in the case of former minister Mirela Holy won't be lowered now."
He said the Hungarian judiciary had realised that Croatia's first deputy PM was irreplaceable. Asked what he meant, Lesar recalled Cacic's statement that he would withdraw from politics only if convicted to an unconditional prison sentence.
Commenting on Milanovic's statement that he would make a decision upon the final sentence, Lesar said "Milanovic will no longer be prime minister when that sentence becomes final."
My comment - Obviously,we are all equal, but some are more equal than others.
