[ELECTIONS 2003] Sanader Backtracks
Mladen Bajić, Croatian chief prosecutor, reacted to Sanader claims of wiretapping like any conscious public official would do. He asked HDZ leader to come to his office and provide him with evidence.
Sanader publicly reacted that he didn't have any evidence. He simply "quoted Račan himself" and "heard rumours about secret police wiretapping foreign diplomats". He later "assumed, based on some conversations, that the same practices would be directed against opposition".
In other words, Sanader doesn't have any shred of evidence that HDZ was subjected to illegal surveillance and wiretappings by Croatian government.
