Zagreb - A Croatian cameraman was fired Friday after Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor took offense over an inscription on a T-shirt the cameraman was wearing at the government press conference.
RTL television cameraman on Thursday afternoon wore a T-shirt with the words, "I do not need sex, the government fucks me every day."
Kosor said the sign was insulting, while the cameraman defended himself by saying that it was the only clean shirt he had.
RTL television on Friday fired the cameraman, saying he had behaved unprofessionally and damaged RTL's reputation.
Zagreb - The Croatian Parliament on Monday elected Jadranka Kosor as the nation's first female prime minister, days after her predecessor and mentor Ivo Sanader suddenly resigned - but few seem to doubt that he continues to pull the strings.
The former journalist and Sanader's deputy took over on Saturday as head of the conservative Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), as with the post of premier, with Sanader's strong backing.
Zagreb - The Croatian Parliament late Monday approved a government led by former reporter Jadranka Kosor.
After an all-day session, Kosor became Croatia's first woman prime minister by a vote of 83-45.
She succeeded Ivo Sanader, who shocked Croatia last week by resigning after leading the country for six years.
The 56-year-old Kosor is taking over in a difficult time for Croatia, with the global economic downturn having a severe effect. Kosor pledged to deal with the Balkan country's economic problems and bring Croatia into the European Union by 2011.
