Wall of Shame

Fed-up locals on the northern Croatian island of Rab who had enough of fellow residents not pulling their weight when it came to development projects in the village, had decided to name and shame the culprits.

The tablet, errected in the small village of Barbat on the eastern side of the island, names and shames those residents who did not financially contribute to the widening of the local road or for the errection of a new stone wall.

The tablet is divided into sections; listing the names of those who initially said they would donate money to the project, those who said they would donate but did not pay what they initially said, those who still owe money and the amount, and a special column for those who did not pay anything at all.
