He guaranteed that if he comes to power, one of the first things he will do is thoroughly air out the court system. He especially touched upon the suicide of an 18 year old in the Split prison.

“The case that took place in Split, where the judge practically committed involuntary manslaughter, sending a mentally handicapped person to prison, instead of the hospital, must end in a manner that that judge cannot adopt any more decisions, because judges adopt rulings in the name of the people. He cannot decide in the name of the people, because no people, least of all the Croatian people, deserve to have judges that will process and throw people into the penal system, who should be in the hospital. This was last done by Adolf Hitler,” said Krešo Beljak.
