Ljubljana – A 6am-6pm ban on overtaking for lorries on the A1 motorway between Šentilj and Koper entered into force on Friday. Police controls will be beefed up.
The new regime will be in place for lorries weighing more than 7.5 tonnes. Overtaking will still be allowed for these vehicles during the day in three-lane sections, and on the entire motorway in night time.
The Croatian Office for the Suppression of Corruption and Organised Crime, USKOK, announced on Monday that it will instruct the police to investigate suspicions of possible negligence and other failings during the post-war reconstruction of buildings that were badly damaged by the powerful earthquake that hit the Banovina area of Sisak-Moslavina county in central Croatia last week.
"The government is currently facing two crises, COVID-19 and earthquakes, we decided today to declare a catastrophe in the Sisak-Moslavina County, parts of Zagreb and Karlovac County, but also to form a Crisis Staff headed by Tomo Medved. Representatives of all will be included. Milosevic and Horvat will be the deputies", Plenkovi said, as Jutarnji reports.
