Former Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader has pleaded not guilty to charges that he took 480,000 Euros commission from Austrian Hypo bank for securing them a loan placement with the Croatian government.
"I do not consider myself guilty for the actions of which I am accused. In all of high state offices I held, it never occurred to me to take a commission. I reject all accusations that I am a war profiteer with disgust. I always served for the good of the country," Sanader told the hearing today (Thu).
This is the first trial against the former PM, who is suspected in several cases of fraud and embezzlement. The trial was postponed from last week until today due to the defendants complaints of health problems.
