Corruption probe into HDZ MP stopped

The USKOK anti-corruption office said on Thursday that it had stopped an investigation into Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) MP and former Knin mayor Josipa Rimac and her husband for incitement to abuse of office in the purchase of real estate.

USKOK said on its website that it had stopped the investigation because during the probe it had not established a relevant degree of suspicion that they had committed said crime.

USKOK, however, indicted Ana Maria Radic, a former official at the Ministry of Regional Development, for procuring property worth more than HRK 548,000 to Rimac's family at the expense of the state budget.
