The Constitutional Court ruled on Monday that the laws passed by the Croatian Parliament on the powers of the Civil Protection Headquarters are in accordance with the Constitution, and that the majority of decisions of the Headquarters made due to the coronavirus epidemic are legal.
At a closed-door session on Monday, the Constitutional Court did not accept, or rejected, most of the proposals challenging the legality of the powers and decisions of the Civil Protection Headquarters.
The Constitutional Court ruled - all decisions made by the National Civil Protection headquarters are legal, and only one, the one banning work on Sundays at the beginning of the pandemic, was not in accordance with the Constitution.
Out of 13 judges, all decisions were made by 10 votes, while in each decision three judges voted against, and their separate opinions will be published later.
The court sat without the presence of the media.
