Todoric is wanted for "corruption, forgery of administrative documents and trafficking therein", according to the notice posted on the website of the European Union's agency for law enforcement cooperation.

The owner of Agrokor is wanted by the Croatian judicial authorities for prosecution because of criminal offences under several articles of the country's penal code: abuse of trust in business dealings; violation of duty to keep commercial and business records; forging official or business documents and instigation, the notice reads.

On October 24, Croatia's Chief State Prosecutor's Office said it has issued a European arrest warrant for Ivica Todoric.

Croatia's ministry of the interior told SeeNews at the time that upon receiving the European arrest warrant the country's police has launched measures to track down Todoric at the international level.

Ivica Todoric, his two sons, and 12 business associates are under investigation for suspected criminal offences at Agrokor that led Croatia's largest privately-held concern to the brink of collapse earlier this year.
