Hernádi is wanted by Interpol
International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) has, once again, listed MOL CEO Zsolt Hernádi on its most wanted persons list after Croatian police issued a warrant for his arrest in the autumn of 2013 on suspicion of bribing former Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader, Hungarian news agency MTI reported yesterday.
According to the allegations, Hernádi bribed Sanader to secure Hungarian oil and gas company MOL with management rights in Croatian peer INA. MTI reported that Hernádi’s name was removed from the list in March of the following year after his case came under review by the Commission for the Control of Interpol's Files (CCF).
Last Thursday, the Zagreb County Court postponed Hernádi’s trial, as the Supreme Court has still not made a ruling on an appeal by the defense's counsel concerning a translation of the indictment into a language Hernádi can understand. The county court had earlier rejected the request for the translation.
