The Ministry of Justice and Administration said on Thursday that "at the moment there are no grounds for further action on the request by Zoran Mamic to serve his prison sentence in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which had previously been rejected by the Zagreb County Court.
The Ministry said in a statement that the Zagreb County Court had informed it that the attached documentation — the convict’s application, his personal data and publicly available data, showed that the legal preconditions for submitting a request to the competent body in Bosnia and Herzegovina to take over the execution of the verdict had not been met.
“Considering that, based on the established facts and the letter from the competent court, the legal precondition for submitting a request to the competent body in Bosnia and Herzegovina to take over the execution of the verdict have not been met, the Ministry of Justice and Administration at the moment has no grounds for further action on the request by the convict Zoran Mamic,” the Ministry said.
The sentencing judge of the Zagreb County Court has decided that former Dinamo coach Zoran Mamic and former tax collector Milan Pernar must report to the Zagreb prison on 10 May to serve their sentences.
If Zoran Mamic does not appear in prison by 10 May, an arrest warrant and a European arrest warrant will be issued for him, Zagreb County Court spokesman Kresimir Devcic told Hina.
