Speaking at a news conference in front of the Supreme Court today, members of the Franak borrowers association told its activists that the association has won its case.
Namely, yesterday the court adopted a decision in favor of those who had loans pegged to the Swiss franc.
“We have finally received a decision saying that we are right, we won and now 125 000 people can sue banks. 30 000 have already sued and I expect that by June 2023 there will be a total of more than 100 000 cases. In the meantime the Supreme Court will have a few more tasks. The Supreme Court must decide if contracts with currency clauses in the Swiss franc are null and void. What I would tell borrowers who want to sue banks, is to join the Franak association. The next thing is not to hurry with filing cases, we have all the way until 2023. Wait for the Franak association to prepare the new terrain and to communicate with lawyers the manner in which to sue, following this final decision by the Croatian Supreme Court,” said Franak association activist and Member of Parliament Goran Aleksić.
