Former Defense Minister Marijo Banožić is making progress in his recovery. After being treated in the Intensive Care Unit, he has been moved to the Neurosurgery Clinic for further multidisciplinary care. Reports from HRT confirm this improvement. According to Croatian law, Banožić has 8 days to activate his parliamentary mandate after dismissal. His lawyer submitted a request on his behalf to activate the mandate, put it on hold, and activate the so-called 6+6 privilege. This means that Banožić will be paid his full official salary for the next six months and half of it for the following six months.
