Labour Party wants commission of inquiry to investigate president's allegations against Lozancic

Tomislav Koncevski of the Labour party asked in parliament on Friday that a commission of inquiry be set up to investigate allegations made by President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic that former Security and Intelligence Agency (SOA) chief Dragan Lozancic was a personal intelligence officer for former Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic.

"We will ask that a inquiry commission be set up to finally investigate the allegations about who is being tapped. I cannot believe that the president can say something like that on public television, namely that the SOA chief can be someone's personal intelligence officer. Someone had to endorse it, someone has to control it. If we don't have mechanisms that control the SOA  chief, then that is very sad, I don't know what parliament and its national security committee are doing. I think it is very irresponsible to depend on just one man," Koncevski said after a recess which he requested on behalf of the Labour Party club of deputies.

He called on MPs to sign the initiative for setting up the commission of inquiry. He needs the signatures of at least one tenth of all MPs, namely 16, for the commission to be set up.
