Director Wants Taxpayer To Fork Out For Luxury Car

The Director of Croatia’s Plitvice National Park has been wrapped on the knuckles by Enviroment Minister Mihael Zmajlovic after coming under public fire when she requested a luxury vehicle at the tax payers expense.

Lidija Bertovic, who has been in the job just three months, was not satisfied with the vehicle of her predecessor, a 2-year-old Audi A6, and decided to put a tender out looking for a new car.

Bertovic listed the requirements of her desired car, which included a minimum 250 horse power motor, 7-gear transmission, leather interior and a factory installed navigation system. Technically and characteristically, her desires could only be met by BMW, Mercedes, VW, Volvo and Audi, and only the most expensive models. Her high standards would have set the tax payer back close to 100,000 euros had the Minister not intervened.

With the current economic situation in Croatia in dire straits, Minister Zmajlovic has sensibly quashed Bertovic’s attempt to get the new luxury vehicle.
