All 12 suspects in Agrokor affair released
That was the decision of the County Court, which concluded that both of Todorić’s sons, Ante and Ivan, will also be able to stay outside of prison.
Remand prison has been ordered solely for their father and former Agrokor boss Ivica Todorić, who remains at large and for whom an arrest warrant will probably be issued.
The decision was made late on Wednesday evening after an eight-hour hearing at the Court. With the decision, the County Court struck a powerful blow to the State Attorney's Office in Zagreb, which lost the first legal battle in the long process.
The court only had bad news for Ivica Todorić, who is still not in prison since he has not made himself available to the Croatian judicial and police authorities.
It is still not clear where Ante Todorić and his sons are and whether or not they plan to return to Croatia, but it is assumed that they are currently in the United Kingdom.
It seems that Ivica Todorić does not intend to return to Croatia for the time being, so the British courts might have to be the ones to formally decide on his extradition to Zagreb. ■
