Zagreb - The Opposition-sponsored motion for a commission of inquiry into alleged irregularities in the post-war reconstruction was rejected by the Parliament on Thursday, the last day before its summer recess.
In the 151-seat Parliament, 43 MPs voted for the establishment of the commission while 74 lawmakers were against it.
The motion was submitted in January after the 29 December devastating earthquake in Sisak-Moslavina County when some of the houses reconstructed after the 1991-1995 war suffered extensive damage.
The Parliament endorsed by a majority vote the government's report on the effects of the measures taken under the legislation on the protection of the population against contagious diseases from 16 January to 31 May 2021.
In the said period, HRK 1.7 billion was disbursed for coronavirus testing and for the treatment of COVID-19 patients. Also, 51 million kunas was spent on the procurement of protective garments, and since the outbreak of the epidemic, HRK 595 million has been invested into the procurement of protective clothes.
The Sabor endorsed reports on the performance of the offices of the ombudspersons for children and for disabled people in 2020.
