Big Brother Croatia Update: Unpaid Debts

Krešo Jengić (Kreso Jengic) is the first Big Brother Croatia contestant to be arrested following his participation in the show. According to Jutarnji list, one of the more popular ex-housemates was brought to one of Zagreb police stations for questioning about apparent credit card fraud. It turned out that Krešo had some 25,000 HRK (cca. 3300 €) of unpaid debts made via his Diners Club card. Lawyers representing Diners Club filed criminal complaint. In his statement to Jutarnji list Krešo denied that the affair was serious and claimed that he had forgot to pay because of "too many media obligations".

In the meantime, Večernji list (Vecernji list) reports that Saša Tkalčević (Sasa Tkalcevic), the most popular housemate and most likely winner, went into House with the clear aim to earn 1 million HRK and thus pay his own huge debts. According to the article, there are two law offices representing two groups of debtors with total of 215,000 HRK of outstanding debts. Most of the debts were made because of Saša's inability to pay the rent for the use of premises for his various businesses. Saša's wife Nataša Tkalčević (Natasa Tkalcevic) confirms the dire financial situation but also expresses confidence that her husband would ultimately pay all debts "like he had before".
