Croat parliament lifts ex-PM Sanader's immunity

The Croatian parliament lifted immunity from prosecution for former Prime Minister Ivo Sanader on Thursday, paving the way for his possible detention in an anti-graft probe requested by state prosecutors.

Earlier on Thursday, parliament's immunity commission lifted Sanader's immunity upon request from the state prosecutors, but police said Sanader, a prime minister from 2004 to 2009 had left the European Union candidate country.

Sanader told the Vecernji List daily by cell phone he had taken a "pre-planned business trip and would heed the prosecutor's call."
