ZABA - Annual Report for 1993

"From the ZABA Annual Report for 1993, it comes out that ZABA was claiming at the time that it was created partly from the Zagreb City Savings Bank (Gradska štedionica Zagreb), i.e. the Zagreb Credit Bank (Kreditna banka Zagreb), and partly from Jugobanka - Main Bank in Zagreb (osnovna banka Zagreb). In this way - during wartime - ZABA conducted a propaganda campaign, claiming that "were anyone to ask" how it was that ZABA became private without having undergone any kind of transformation and privatization process, then the outcome would be that "the Serbs would come and take their part." In other words, waving the Serb bogeyman was used to hide ZABA's criminal "privatization."

The case being that Pask Kacinari, as an Albanian born in Kosovo, is a dual citizen of both the Republic of Croatia and the Republic of Serbia, he has in this way - in the capacity of a citizen of the Republic of Serbia - reported the rights of the Republic of Serbia to shares of ZABA, on the basis of the fact that Serbian-based Jugobanka (i.e. its Zagreb branch, Jugobanka - osnovna banka Zagreb) was, together with the Zagreb Credit Bank (Kreditna Banka Zagreb, a.k.a. Gradska stedionica), one of the cofounders of ZABA.

Jutarnji list:
An article from the Zagreb daily "Jutarnji List" of November 13, 2006, in which ZABA explicitly admits that it was created through the merger of the former Zagreb City Savings Bank (Gradska Stedionica), which was the city's own bank in communist times, and Serbian-based Jugobanka's Croatian branch.

Accompanying the article is a photo of ZABA's building on Jelacic Square (Jelacicev trg br. 10) in Zagreb, which was built by the moneys of the City of Zagreb during the 1930s, and, subsequently, by a decision of the People's Committee of the City of Zagreb of 1953, incorporated into ZABA as capital invested by the City of Zagreb into its own communal bank.

History of ZABA, 1914-1984

This document shows a detailed history of ZABA, from its beginnings in 1914, as the Zagreb City Savings Bank ("Gradska štedionica Grada Zagreba"), to 1984. From this document it can be clearly seen that:
 

  • ZABA was founded by the City of Zagreb, as the city's own communal bank (pp. 8-12),

  • That, under the name of City Savings Bank (Gradska štedionica), ZABA continued to function after World War II, i.e. after the nationalization of the banking sector (pp. 19, 25),

  • That, through the decentralization of the banking industry, ZABA once again became the communal bank of the City of Zagreb, which can be seen from the decision of the Peoples Committee for the City of Zagreb, which incorporated into ZABA the building located at Jelacicev trg 10, and named the executive board of Gradska štedionica, one of whose members became Stjepan Mikša, whose son, Branko Mikša, was the mayor of Zagreb and a minister in the Croatian government during the 1990s, and is today a member of the suupervisory board of "Agrokor d.d." companu (pp. 31-32, 34),

  • That in 1966 Gradska štedionica merged with local communal banks from northwestern Croatia into the Zagreb Credit Bank (Kreditna banka Zagreb), with the majority of the latter's capital being in fact the capital of Gradska štedionica, the City of Zagreb's communal bank, which retained its organizational autonomy within Kreditna banka Zagreb (p. 40),

  • That, in the process, the capital that the City of Zagreb had incorporated into Gradska štedionica had now become a part of Kreditna banka Zagreb, including the building at Jelacicev trg 10, and the building in Paromlinska 2, which buildings are today the offices of the entire ZABA management, with the chief management being seated at Paromlinska 2 (p. 42-43),

  •   That on December 14, 1977, a merger was carried out between Kreditna banka Zagreb and Jugobanka - Main Bank in Zagreb, forming today's ZABA (as of January 1, 1978). The document clearly shows that all of Jugobanka's real property was transferred to today's ZABA (pp. 42-43).

Original Document Showing the Rights of the Republic of Serbia to ZABA Shares

During the merger of Kreditna banka Zagreb and Jugobanka bank - seated in Zagreb, a self-managing agreement on merging into ZABA was formed. Among other things, this Agreement states (Article 256) that ZABA is the legal successor of the former Kreditna banka Zagreb and Jugobanka bank - seated in Zagreb. This Agreement was jointly brought by the respective bodies of Kreditna banka Zagreb and Jugobanka bank - seated in Zagreb, on Dec. 1, 1977, after which it was verified by ZABA's Executive Board, on Jan. 23, 1979.

This document forms the basis for teh claim of the rights of the Republic of Serbia, as the legal successor of the former Jugobanka, to ZABA shares and real property.

This document was the subject of an article published on the Croatian independent portal www.necenzurirano.com on June 6, 2007, by independent journalist Domagoj Margetic, under the title, "Whose is ZABA?" The article explains how a group of people in Croatia's executive branch, in agreement with a group of people on ZABA's Board, made an agreement to destroy this document, as well as to organize a fixed investigation about ZABA's legal succession that would eventually "determine" that there is no legal succession and that the Republic of Serbia has no rights at all. The article claims that it was also agreed to destroy all the preserved copies of the Agreement that could serve as proof. However, the said investigative portal has in the meantime come to obtain a preserved copy of this Agreement, scanned it and published it.

Therefore, it will be impossible to further conceal this material as it will be sufficient to go to the said internet page and download it. We thus refer you to the said article and scanned Agreement on the independent investigative portal www.necenzurirano.com.

Pask Kacinari's Letter to Serbian Media

 

Pask Kacinari alerts Serbian media to the fact that two "Jugobanka" banks existed in Croatia over different time periods, and that the balance of the property is located in the "Jugobanka" reported by Pask Kacinari. The property from this "Jugobanka" IS NOT PART OF THE SUCCESSION OF EX-YUGOSLAVIA, which means that Serbia can immediately claim it, independently of the succession process. There was no previous information about this property in Serbia and no one had reported anything about it. Besides this property, the property of the "other" "Jugobanka" from Croatia is also a part of ZABA property, which was known and written about in Serbia. However, the latter is included in the Succession process.
