    At a press conference following the session of the HDZ Presidency, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković criticized N1 television, incensed by a journalist’s question regarding a statement made by former state attorney Krunislav Olujić. The question that irritated him pertained to the possibility of President Zoran Milanović nullifying the appointment of the chief state attorney if he deemed something in the procedure was not done correctly.

    After stating that he wouldn’t waste words on such statements and that he wasn’t there to interpret others’ statements, Plenković also addressed N1, saying to them, “You are semi-legal in Croatia; you haven’t obtained a concession.”
