Novalic: Problems of 'Hidrogradnja' must be solved by bankruptcy trustee (VIDEO).
FBiH Prime Minister Fadil Novalic has told "Hidrogradnja" workers protesting in front of the FBiH Government building that it would be unlawful for him to hold a meeting with them, i.e. if he would interfere with the bankruptcy proceedings, as the bankruptcy trustee is the one in charge of addressing the current problems of this company.
'The bankruptcy proceedings in Hidrogradnja has been going on for 15 months now. According to the Law on Bankruptcy, the bankruptcy trustee is obliged to conduct the bankruptcy proceedings, protecting equally all parties, among which are the most sensitive workers with their demands for wages, bonding of service, severance pay... Unfortunately, the bankruptcy trustee of Hidrogradnja is the one dealing with bankruptcy business,' Mr. Novalic said.
Recalling that a new company has been set up in Hidrogradnja, employing 800 people, he drew attention to the fact that a few days ago in the 'OsloboAenje' an advertisement was published announcing the purchase of new equipment.
'So someone is developing this bankruptcy firm in the bankruptcy business instead of putting it up for sale so some other company from the construction sector could buy it, give money for it, which would then serve to settle other parties' claims,' Mr. Novalic emphasized.
He points out that the Federation of BiH Government expects all competent parties, especially the bankruptcy judge, to speed up the bankruptcy proceedings and allow workers to receive their claims.
