As far as it seems, the president Ivo Josipovic doesn't intend to return 200 000 HRK of Robert Jezic's donations for the presidential campaign. If he wanted to do so, he would have returned that money eventually. Now Josipovic repeats his own two-years-old statement (when the affair about Dioki, Sanader and Jezic was revealed):
- My conscious is clear, and regarding this money return, I think the same rule applies to everyone. If there is a causative link between eventual criminal activity and Jezic's donation, I will return the money.
- The question is - are the State attorney, USKOK or lawyers going to denounce this so-called causative link between eventual criminal activity and the donation. Although Jezic has confessed during the trial that he allegedly spent the money. This money was part of MOL's 5 million Euro bribe to Sanader. And Josipovic, I suppose, still waits to see if the donation came from the part of bribery or regular Dioki's business activity, and then he will bring a decision.
However, if there won't be any proof that the donation for Josipovic came the from the ''dirty'' part, this ''moral connection'' will still remain hanging, as a matter of fact Josipovic called those connections as Justice in his campaign. If nothing else, at least it would be nice if the President returns that money even if there is no causative link.
For example the President could give that money to Dioki workers who haven't received their salaries for five months. To workers who descended Dioki's tower the other day while being exhausted from the hunger strike. Kresimir Belobrk and Sinisa Androlic were on strike for five days sitting on the 50 meters high tower.
And while they were without food and water as a part of a protest due to failed company where salaries haven't been paid, Josipovic as a sign of his protest, refuses to return 200 000 HRK.
And this protest doesn't fit to someone who had studied about people being a foundation of justice.
- We are foundations of justice since every one of us is a person who creates or denies justice by his acts. So we shouldn't be afraid, we shouldn't keep quiet, we shouldn't turn away our heads! Courage wins over injustice.
Josipovic obviously doesn't find himself within that statement but supposedly has seen himself in other statement about justice and righteousness. They are excellence that we still have to find in their complete fullness.However, he obviously still hasn’t found them.
