Bizarre Case of State Stake in ZABA

Pasko Kacinari, a controversial Zagreb jeweler, has sued the State and won his claim that the privatization of Zagrebacka banka did not include much of the bank’s capital, which was mostly held by the State.  The buyers, UniCredit Group, never had the chance to buy that stake.  The State is disputing the finding, and especially Kacinari’s demand for a 10-percent finder’s fee on the stake worth some HRK 330 million in total.

www.domagojmargetic.com: CROATIAN STATE PROSECUTOR IS NOT INTERESTED IN THE PROPERTY OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA NOR IN CRIMINAL ACTS THAT DAMAGE THE STATE - Treason in high places


It is interesting to note the speed with which the State Prosecutor's Office has acted on Pask Kacinari's recent filing regarding the lost property of the State which he has found, i.e. about the great robbery of Zagrebacka banka carried out by the interest group to which, among others, belongs the current Zaba Board Chairman, Franjo Lukovic. Even though it usually takes the State Prosecutor's Office about two years to solve similar cases, in the case of Zaba someone has worked to ensure an express resolution. Thus, in the space of less than one month, the State Prosecutor's Office has displayed a scandaous lack of interest regarding the organized crime and corruption taking place under high political protection, to the detriment of the Republic of Croatia, and to the tune of several billion euros, The State Prosecutor's Office, nevertheless, is not interested in this case, but cannot deny the existence of the criminal activity listed in the filing of March 24, 2006.

Zagrebačka Banka Laundered Over $900 Milliion for Terrorist Organizations - WILL U.S. AUTHORITIES SOON BLOCK THE FUNCTIONING OF ZABA?
Zagreb businessman, jeweller and ZABA shareholder, Mr. Pašk
Kačinari, has filed new documents in the ZABA case.
On April 6, 2006, Kačinari submitted to the ZABA Board and Shareholder AssemblyCounterproposals for the Proposed Decisions of the Executive and Superivsory Boards to the General Shareholders Assembly, which will take place on May 8, 2006, and requests their publication according to the law.

Crime inside Zagrebačka banka - Secret Documents about the Privatization of ZABA

The ZABA Board skillfully concocted a privatization project ensuring that the majority packet of shares remained under the bank's ownership, i.e. in the form of treasury shares at the disposal of the Board, which owes its very position to the ability of manipulating these shares. In this way, the Board has damaged not only the bank but the state budget, citizens, customers and shareholders of ZABA, in the amount of over 1 billion Euros between 1989 and 2004.

It is a trail of the rape of the Croatian economy in the 1990s and the stealing of shares from state-owned companies. And UNICREDITO ITALIANO and ALLIANZ are the holders of the stolen property today!

ZABA Forced to Reveal Document Trail of its Shares in Gavrilovic Co. by Zagreb Commercial Court
ZABA forced shares of Gavrilovic Holding to be sold to Voce Export-Import, alleges Voce's former Director. ZABA subsequently forced Voce into bankruptcy a short time later and took its shares and property. This was the way ZABA grabbed hold of shares of 1,287 other Croatian state-owned companies during the war of the 1990s.
 
Also revealed: Croatia's Central Bank informs Croatian Parliament in 2005 that "the owners of more than 70% of ZABA's original founding capital are unknown."
