The Police Directorate has said that so far no evidence has been found to corroborate claims about irregularities in the allocation of mobile homes and that a man has been reported for disseminating false news about vaccination against COVID-19 being mandatory in the earthquake-hit area.
After a recording appeared on social networks in which a volunteer from Losinj accused the competent authorities of irregularities in the allocation of mobile homes in the region of Banija, hit by a devastating earthquake on 29 December, police started checking the allegations, the Police Directorate said in response to a query from the state agency Hina.
Police checks conducted so far have not corroborated the allegations about irregularities in the allocation of mobile homes, the Police Directorate said.
For some of the mobile homes it has been established that they were delivered to people for whom they were intended and for others checks are being made to establish to whom they were sent since police have established that some of the people for whom mobile homes were intended have in the meantime been given other housing units, which is why they have asked that the mobile homes intended for them be given to other people in need, the police said.
The police also reported that a 47-year-old man from Sveti Djuradj was reported for disseminating false news on social networks about vaccination against COVID-19 being compulsory in the earthquake-hit areas.
Sisak-Moslavina County Police Department spokesman Darko Kacmarcik told Hina that false claims were also disseminated on social networks about members of the Roma minority breaking into houses in the quake-hit area and looting and intercepting trucks with humanitarian aid, adding that no such illegal activity had taken place.
