UK judge denies Agrokor founder Todoric permission to appeal against extradition
Todoric is being investigated in Croatia over the crisis at Agrokor, the largest private company in the Balkans with about 60,000 employees.
He denies any wrongdoing and says Croatia has launched a politically motivated process against him. Thursday’s decision means he has to return to Croatia within 24 days.
“Whilst I am very disappointed by today’s ruling, it will not stop me from exposing rampant corruption at the very top of the Croatian government and holding those involved accountable,” Todoric said after the hearing at the High Court.
“I will not be intimidated by the politically and financially motivated attacks against me,” he added. ■
