Croatia's Deputy PM Cacic resigns after prison sentence
ZAGREB (Reuters) - Croatian Deputy Prime Minister Radimir Cacic resigned on Wednesday after a Hungarian court sentenced him to 22 months in prison for causing a fatal car crash in 2010.
"Aware of my responsibilities to the state, the government and Croatian citizens, I am resigning from the government," Cacic told an impromptu news conference after returning from an investment trip in Qatar.
A court in the Hungarian town of Kaposvar made public its ruling earlier on Wednesday.
