Largest Court Trial in Croatian History Begins in a Cinema

Croatia WeekThe largest ever trial in the history of the Croatian Justice system gets underway today in the capital Zagreb, but the case will not be heard in a courtroom, but in a cinema…

With around 700 people taking part in the Forex trial, no courtroom in the country is bigger enough to accommodate those numbers, so it was decided to move the trial to a cinema in the capital. Nine defendants will be in the ‘box’ today, charged with financial fraud against 681 complainants, totalling around 18 million euros. The Ministry of Justice had a number of options to choose from to facilitate the trial, but they selected the Student Centre cinema at a cost of around 1,000 euros per day, according to reports.
