The government has recently approved a compensation plan for former Minister of Defense Marij Banožić, granting him full ministerial salary for the next six months and half of that salary for the six months following. This decision was confirmed by Banski dvor after receiving a request from Banožić’s lawyer.
Banožić’s net salary in his former role was 2,740 euros. Additionally, his lawyer recently withdrew a request for the activation and suspension of his parliamentary mandate due to personal reasons using a power of attorney. As a result, the Mandate and Immunity Committee’s session scheduled to discuss and decide on the request was cancelled. Previously, the MIP had expressed their readiness to comply with the lawyer’s request to activate Banožić and then suspend his parliamentary mandate after reviewing the documentation.
