Jailed Former Vice PM Buys Radio Station

Former Croatian Deputy Prime Minister Damir Polancec, who is currently in jail serving a 10-month prison sentence for paying Vukovar lawyer Petar Miletic 500,000 kuna (70,000 euros) from state funds for an unnecessary expert study, has purchased a radio station.

Polancec has become the major owner of Radio Drava, which broadcasts in the Koprivica-Krzevci County, writes daily paper Vecernji list.

The deal was done shortly before Polancec began serving his sentence on 15 October and was done via the company Irikon, which is formally owned by Polancec’s wife.
