Investor Seeks Refuge At EU Embassy After Fleeing Suspected State Agents

A dual Croatian and Zimbabwean citizen, Joseph Richard Crnkovic, on Thursday fled from a local hotel and sought refugee at the European Union Commission offices fearing “assassination”.

Crnkovic, a director of Fopuld Investments with 49% shareholding in Cadrina, is embroiled in a fight for control of the Glen Forest Memorial Park with his business partners who allegedly have police and political connections.

The matter is yet to be heard at the High Court.

EU ambassador to Zimbabwe, Timo Olkonnen, confirmed that Crnkovic was at the embassy at the guard’s parking lot.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, said he had not received any reports regarding the incident.

Crnkovic said he was warned by hotel security of his imminent arrest for undisclosed reasons and had to run for his life.

In his letter to the EU diplomats written from the embassy parking lot, Crnkovic said:

I request protection and an urgent transfer to the French embassy or another suitable embassy where I may have food and water.

Today (Thursday) I was chased by close to 40 unmarked cars which seem to be of State security agents.

Fearing for my life, I rushed to the EU Council. The vehicles followed in fast pursuit.

I barely made it to the commission in time. I believe if I had been a few minutes later, I would be dead.

The reason for this is I am the representative of the company taking Glen Forest Memorial Park to court to stop its operations.

… I have legally attacked the government to get my civil rights back and I have started civil litigation which is not in the interest of the General or President.

Both these actors, the prime decision makers, have been rumoured to be associated with killing people.

The dispute between Crnkovic and the other shareholders started when they tried to buy him out of Candrina.

They offered him shares in a subsidiary of Glen Forest known as Chikomo Chemhute, a cemetery where over 40 000 people are buried but he turned down the offer.

Crnkovic refused to sell his shares in Candrina, arguing that Chikomo Chemhute is an illegitimate enterprise which exposed the business to litigation from families of people buried there.

  1. Zimbabwe 🇿🇼 is open for business , but not for everyone, only to Chinese and Russians.
    When you invest your 51% or 49% with Zanu pf thugs they will kill and grab the business.
    I remember one white guy who was married to Joyceline Chiwenga, he owned a Safety firm and when Joyceline fell in love with Generaru Guvheya. The poor chap was give 24 hours to pack and leave Zimbabwe 🇿🇼. He lost all his investments and also his wife to General. Zimbabwe is open for business.

  2. Why are the British and the Eu so obsessed with Zim? These blood sucking parasites do not care about human rights, rule of law or democracy. Did they care about these issues when the Rhodies were running things. Of course not there was no democracy. They used to hang people in the streets. All they want is our resources. U can go to any part of Zim and start digging for gold. They cannot get over the fact that the black Zimbabweans kicked seven bells of excrement out of them during the war. The war is over let’s move on.

  3. Zim is full of some evil people .evil. what they don’t know is their day is coming.
    You better go home b4 you disappear or put in a disused well somewhere. Run for your life.
