Police have unofficially confirmed for Croatian Radio that, acting on a warrant from the USKOK - Office for Prevention of Corruption and Organized Crime, they are searching the house of former Administration Minister Lovro Kuščević on the island of Brač.
Besides Lovro Kuščević other people are also the subject of investigations.
Police are allegedly looking into property affairs and rezoning of land that media widely reported about at the beginning of summer, when they all carried Kuščević's statement in which he said that he does not know how much property he owns.
The former Administration Minister and Croatian Democratic Union political secretary resigned from all functions on July 8th and two days later Prime Minister Andrej Plenković relieved him from duty as minister. The same day Kuščević activated his mandate in parliament and initiating a procedure against him will require parliament to strip him of immunity. Due alleged affairs Kuščević is allegedly involved in representatives of the opposition and coalition partners in the government called for his resignation.
At the end of July Kuščević said that he sees no reason why USKOK of the State Attorney’s Office would contact him regarding affairs that he is being accused of because he considers them to be fabrications and lies.
