Granić (Granic) Saga Continues

Mate Granić (Mate Granic) might have case against himself thrown by Croatian judicial authorities, but the court of public opinion is another matter. Apparently someone within USKOK, deeply dissatisfied by the way their case against former foreign minister collapsed (although Supreme Court would have the last word on this), leaked the transcript of the conversation between Granić and Vladimir Delonga, businessman and USKOK informer.

The conversation (or at least the first part I had read in newspapers) clearly establishes that Granić was involved in illegal activities. At least this is the impression by most of Croatia's political commentators.

The most shocking aspect of this story isn't in the scandal, Court decision or leaked evidence. The most shocking aspect is in Mate Granić showing incredible incompetence in handling delicate negotiations between Delonga and Darinko Bago, at least judging by the transcripts.
