DUUDI says there was no wrongdoing

The head of the State Administrative Office for State Property Management (DUUDI), Mladen Pejnovic, on Tuesday said in a press release that the State Audit Office had found some irregularities and omissions during a review of DUUDI's performance in 2014 but it had found no breach of law, which meant that DUUDI operated in accordance with laws.

Pejnovic recalled that in mid-February last year, the government tasked DUUDI with taking over balance sheets from its forebearers, and this was done. As a result, in 2014 a balance sheet was created as the starting position requiring a lot of work in the coming years, he said.

Pejnovic said that DUUDI had also warned about those irregularities and omissions it had inherited. 

His press release was triggered off by a statement from the Office of the President saying that President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic was concerned about the findings of the State Audit Office's review of DUUDI's operations after Auditor General Ivan Klesic notified her about the State Audit Office's unfavourable opinion of DUUDI's performance.

At the talks that focused on the State Audit Office's review of the operation of DUUDI and the Environmental Protection Ministry, Grabar-Kitarovic voiced her concern about the findings and irregularities discovered.

According to the State Audit Office, some important segments of DUUDI's financial statements are not reliable and DUUDI's books do not contain information on the real state of affairs regarding its assets and financial obligations.
