Ex-Croat PM`s corruption trial resumes
Zagreb: The trial of former Croatian prime minister Ivo Sanader on charges that he received kickbacks from an Austrian bank has resumed.
The start of the trial was adjourned a week ago when Sanader complained of heart problems. He is the highest ranking former Croat official to face corruption charges.
Sanader is charged with abuse of power for allegedly taking some USD 695,000 (EUR 503,000) for a multimillion credit deal with Hypo Alpe Adria Group in 1994-95 that allowed the Austrian bank entry into the Croatian market.
He was extradited to Croatia from Austria in July to face several separate charges of corruption.
The trial is seen as Croatia`s test on whether it can carry its pledge to the EU that it will fight corruption before it joins the bloc in 2013.
