Prime Minister Announces Emergency Legislation for Judicial Pay Reform: In a recent address from the office of the Prime Minister, it has been revealed that the government will be taking swift action to address the long-standing issue of judicial pay. Emergency legislation is set to be implemented, with draft proposals expected to reach judiciary representatives within the next two weeks. This move comes after the failure of the Government and Parliament to adhere to a Constitutional Court ruling from last June, which deemed the current regulation of judges' salaries as unconstitutional due to its inconsistency with principles of judicial independence and the separation of powers. The legislation is seen as a crucial step towards rectifying this breach and ensuring fair compensation for judicial officials. Additionally, the Prime Minister has assured that a comprehensive overhaul of the salary system will be coordinated to provide a long-term and systemic solution to the issue.

Croatia's Strengthening Gas Infrastructure Project Set to Boost Energy Capacity: Croatia is poised to enhance its energy infrastructure significantly with the ambitious "Strengthening Gas Infrastructure" project. Contracts for the financing of the project were signed last Friday, signaling a major milestone in the country's energy development strategy. The project aims to construct four gas pipelines by mid-2026, effectively increasing the capacity for transporting natural gas from the LNG terminal on the island of Krk. This initiative underscores Croatia's commitment to bolstering its energy sector and diversifying its sources of supply. With a focus on improving connectivity and reliability, the project is expected to have far-reaching benefits for both domestic energy security and regional cooperation.
