On June 3 2016 the European Liberties Platform, referred the Croatian Ombudswoman’s complaint about Parliament’s rejection of its own Report for the year 2015. The Ombudswoman Lora Vidović reminded the government that the report, containing over 50 thematic chapters, offers a detailed look into the realities of life for the people of Croatia. Vidović lamented the fact that the two days of debate on the report in the half-empty Sabor, Croatia’s Parliament, was dedicated almost exclusively to ideological differences, rather than problems that citizens themselves recognize as important.
Citizens’ work, social, economic and other rights are violated or seriously threatened every day, and discrimination still represents a significant problem in the country. Such a rejection is a direct blow to human rights and the rule of law in the Croatian country.
