“The government is rejecting the motion by the group of opposition deputies, but we are also stating that the minister failed to enter annual dividends in his declaration of assets,” he said at a cabinet session, adding that the minister will update and correct the declaration and comply with the Conflict of Interest Commission’s decisions.

The opposition filed the no-confidence motion because Grlic Radman failed to declare the dividends. He co-owns Agroproteinka, a company which has an Agriculture Ministry concession for disposal of animal carcasses. Since 2019, he has received €2.1 million in dividends which he has failed to declare.
