The president of the Constitutional Court Miroslav Šeparović has reported on a number of newer decisions that are of particular interest to the public.
He commented on the decision by the constitutional court related to the rights of the Serbian minority in Vukovar, in relation to which certain articles in the city statute were discontinued.
He also commented on the acceptance of a suit filed by Tomislav Karamarko and returning his case to the Court of Administration.
Miroslav Šeparović noted that in that case, the Constitutional Court did not become involved with the decision by the Conflict of Interest Committee from 2016, that found Karamarko, the deputy prime minister at the time, to be in a conflict of interest due to the so called "consultant affair."
Although it was speculated that the Constitutional Court decision could reduce the authority of the Conflict of Interest Committee in order to save current officials, Šeparović said this did not happen.
“I must sincerely say that I don't know where the theory came from that says by accepting a constitutional suit in the case of Karamarko we will assist Prime Minister Andrej Plenković. I can tell you that this decision will neither help nor hinder Prime Minister Plenković or anyone else. We did not look at the committee, the committee should be looked at by administration courts that unfortunately, according to our evaluation, did not fulfill their role of court control well,” said Šeparović.
