The Conflict of Interest Commission on Friday fined HRK 3,000 each MP Milorad Pupovac for receiving a fee for a second public duty to which he was not entitled and the president's advisor Orsat Miljenic for an incorrect declaration of assets.

The Commission found that Pupovac was not entitled to a fee ranging from HRK 1,800 to 2,300 annually which he received for his work in the Serb National Council (SNV) from 2014 to May 2019.

Commission member Toncica Bozic said work in the SNV was a second public duty as ethnic Serbs were elected to it.

Under the Conflict of Interest Act, an official who receives a salary for a public duty, which in Pupovac’s case is his salary as an MP, is not allowed to receive a second salary nor a fee for discharging a second public duty.

Miljenic was fined for failing to state in his declaration of assets that he was receiving a HRK 3,000 fee from 2018 to February 2019 as a member of the State Judicial Council and that he has shares in Atlantic Group as well as for incorrectly stating the size of his flat.
