Quick Response

Ante Barbir, Croatian drug czar, was dismissed by Ivica Račan (Ivica Racan) only few days after being charged for embezzlement. This is definitely improvement over Tudjman era, when it took months, and sometimes years for officials to get sacked, sent to distant embassies and "promoted" after being caught with hands in a cookie jar.

UPDATE: Actually, Barbir wasn't dismissed. He only offered resignation to Račan, and our prime minister, being a nice fellow, accepted. It is hard to imagine Račan sacking someone for incompetence or corruption.
