Croatian court has sentenced former Prime Minister Ivo Sanader to six years in jail and the boss of Hungary’s MOL energy group to two years for bribery.
Sanader who is already serving time for a separate graft conviction and MOL’s Zsolt Hernadi were convicted for receiving and giving a bribe concerning a 2009 deal after the Hungarian firm purchased shares in local oil and gas group INA, the judge said.
Judge Maja Stipic while ruling said the deal allowed Sanader to pocket 10 million euros in exchange for granting the Hungarian firm control over INA.
