The owner of the Fimi Media advertising company, Nevenka Jurak, is responding to every question from investigators of the Office for the Suppression of Organised Crime and Corruption (USKOK), her attorney Ivo Farcic said on Wednesday.

Farcic added he could not say more and that he did not know how long the interrogation would last or which topics it would address.

After testifying yesterday for nearly five hours on suspicion that tens of millions of kuna had been siphoned from public companies and ministries via her firm, Jurak resumed her deposition today.

Before testifying yesterday, she was remanded in custody for another three months, but it is being speculated that she might be released after being fully deposed, although no one is speculating when this might happen.

According to unofficial information, Jurak gave the money which public companies and ministries paid Fimi Media to Mladen Barisic, a former customs chief and treasurer of the ruling HDZ party. He is suspected of having siphoned HRK 40 million via Jurak's company.

Barisic was arrested and placed in custody after being accused by many witnesses during the investigation into the case.

According to unofficial reports, Barisic told USKOK that he had been doing everything at the orders of former Prime Minister and HDZ leader Ivo Sanader, who was mentioned by other witnesses in the case as well.

In parliament today, however, Sanader denied that Barisic or anyone else had brought him money and that he knew nothing about the funding of his former party with illegally acquired money.

Sanader refuted media allegations that he was under investigation in three cases -- Fimi Media and financial wrongdoing in the state-owned power company HEP and the highway management company Hrvatske Autoceste.
