The trial of the Mamić brothers and others at the Osijek County Court has been delayed this week due to the cancellation of power of attorney by Igor Krota. The individuals are accused by Uskok of embezzling money from NK Dinamo as part of a criminal association in the “Dinamo 2” affair. The purpose of the postponement is to allow Krota to appoint a new lawyer, and a new main hearing is scheduled for November 28th, as revealed in court on Monday.
The indictment includes Zdravko’s son Mario Mamić, former Dinamo director Damir Vrbanović, entrepreneurs Sandro Stipančić and Igor Krota, and manager Nikky Arthur Vuksan. Uskok accuses Zdravko Mamić of organizing the other defendants into a criminal association from December 2004 to December 2015. They are accused of causing damage to Dinamo for over HRK 144 million by entering into fake contracts and issuing invoices for payment of non-existent services related to player transfers. The prosecution also states that NK Dinamo is unjustly obligated to pay an additional 7.35 million euros or 55.8 million kuna.
On October 30th, football manager Nikky Arthur Vuksan settled with Uskok and was sentenced to one year in prison, suspended for five years. Vuksan was found guilty of assisting in an attempt to abuse trust in business operations as part of a criminal association and canceled the power of attorney given to his previous lawyer, Ksenija Vržina, before agreeing on the verdict with Uskok.
