Vice-President of the EPO Under Investigation: Treason, Abuse, Violations, Giving and Receiving Bribes

Željko Topić and FIFASummary: An English translation of documents involving the Organised Crime Section of the Criminal Police Department in Zagreb, where the Vice-President of the EPO faces criminal charges

THE other day we made public a document in Croatian. Translation of this Croatian document is now available for use, with few redactions. An English translation can be found below, but here is some background information.



The articles of the Croatian Criminal Code referred to in the document seem to be the following:

Article 340 - Treason ("Veleizdaja")

The basis for this charge seems to be an allegation of an unlawful change in the structure of the state administration (abolition of the Copyright and Related Rights department of the SIPO) which it is claimed undermined the constitutional organisation of the Republic of Croatia.

Article 291 - Abuse of position and authority

Article 125 - Violation of equality

Article 131 - Violation of the right to work

Article 293 - Accepting a Bribe

Article 294 - Giving a Bribe

There's more coming soon, based on sources of ours in Zagreb, who heard from people close to these matters that it would get even worse.
