firstenercastfinancial.com on December 20, 2011 reported that Croatian prosecutors said Tuesday they had repeated a request to Hungary to be able to question the head of Hungarian energy group MOL, Zsolt Hernadi, suspected in Zagreb over his role in a major corruption case. Both Sanader and MOL have denied that any illegal payments took place. "A probe against Zsolt Hernadi is still ongoing in Croatia," a statement from the national anti-graft bureau USKOK said in Zagreb. "In early December, a demand for [Hernadi's] questioning was forwarded to the relevant Hungarian judicial bodies since without his questioning the investigation cannot be completed," it said. Zagreb suspects Hernadi of paying about $13 million in bribes to former Croatian prime minister Ivo Sanader to ensure that MOL had a prevailing influence in Croatia's oil and gas group INA, even though it did not hold a majority stake in the firm.
