Croatian Security Head Fired Amid Call-Monitoring Reports

Oct. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Croatia’s national-security chief, Petar Misevic, has been dismissed by Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic and President Ivo Josipovic amid media reports of illegal call-monitoring of officials and businessmen.

“While we have not found any wrongdoing, the scope of our search is limited, and we brought a joint decision to replace the head of the National Security Council,” Milanovic told said at a joint briefing with Josipovic in Zagreb today.

The parliamentary committee for national security will investigate further, Milanovic said. Josipovic said Misevic’s dismissal was part of an intelligence overhaul that included the recent replacement of the head of the Security and Intelligence Agency, one of the security bodies overseen by the council, which reports to the premier and the president.

Misevic has yet to comment publicly on reports that police overstepped their authority in monitoring lists of calls by prominent individuals, which newspapers Vecernji List and Jutarnji List published today, citing people they didn’t name.
