An employee of the Ministry was fired because of this report.

While traveling through Eastern Europe on bicycles, on their way to Thessalonica where the EU summit will be taking place, a group of activists from EU countries visited Zagreb. On their way, they highlight the problems of immigration policy and, as they put it, the closing of ‘Fortress Europe’. They expressed their disagreement with a peaceful protest in Zagreb's Flower Square, during the marking of the Europe Day. Special police arrested five activists, although, according to the loudspeaker of the Ministry of European Integration, there was no need for that. An employee of the Ministry was fired because of this report.
