Undemocratic and unconstitutional election practices - Sydney Australia

 
 
I’m writing to you to report the undemocratic and unconstitutional practices within the offices of the Consulate General to Croatia in Sydney Australia.
http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/191206154103-02-sydney-smoke-slider-before-large-169.jpg
My name is Sime Lisica and I’m a Australian Croatian. I live in Croatia, I opened and operate two companies in Croatia, I invested in Croatia. I gave up Australia for Croatia! I am currently in Australia visiting my family over the Christmas period, it was never stated in Croatia that if I was leaving Croatia then I had to register to vote in the country of arrival or that I had to obtain a “potvrda” from Croatia that allows me to vote in Australia? That is absolutely ridiculous and absurd, as someone who has read the constitution of Croatia multiple times and knows that this document is the highest law in the land and that you cannot make special rules that have not been passed into law around the inalienable rights that the constitution of Croatia permits its citizens.
 
Let me tell you about my day. This morning I arrived at the Consulate General to Croatia on Kent Street in Sydney Australia, the time was approximately 10:00am I told the person behind the counter that my address is in Croatia, I felt that he did not understand what I was telling him – I have residency and I live in Croatia. He told me that I was not able to vote, I immediately told him that this was undemocratic and that it is my right to vote. He told me he was unable to help me. I again announced that this was undemocratic and left the office of the Consulate General.
 
After an hour had passed it had occurred to me that the staff member who told me he couldn’t help me essentially turned away a Croatian citizen from Croatian Territory (The consulate offices being the territory of the Republic of Croatia) I soon realised that he had violated my inalienable human rights under the Croatian Constitution. I quickly referred back to the constitution and decided that I would return the offices of the Consulate General and state my case.
 
I came back to the offices just before 14:00. This time I told them that they cannot deny my right to vote as it is unconstitutional, I then continued to tell the staff that the constitution is the highest document in the land and that you are unwilling to help a Croatian citizen who is standing on Croatian Territory. I asked the question if this is the territory of Croatia, they replied “naravno” so then what is the problem? The problem seems to be some piece of paper that I was meant to obtain from Croatia giving me permission to vote in Australia? Permission to vote? I don’t need permission to vote, voting is my inalienable right as a Croatia citizen. They did try to help me,  but couldn’t help me or where unwilling to help me because they have been given a bureaucratic guideline to follow that is not law. The staff at the consulate generals office have sworn an oath to the constitution but do not follow it. Maybe I am more proud of Croatia then what they are – I gave up the country I was born in to be there and this is how the country treats its citizens.
 
The worst part of this is that the staff readily admitted that they have turned away multiple Croatian citizens in the same manner they had turned me away, this means that today on multiple occasions, multiple citizens have had their inalienable rights violated and multiple votes will not be counted. Completely undemocratic!
Bellow you will find all the rights under the constitution that have been violated on Croatian Territory.
 
Article 1 state:
 
The Republic of Croatia is a unitary and indivisible democratic and social state. Power in the Republic of Croatia derives from the people and belongs to the people as a community of free and equal citizens. The people exercise the power through the election of representatives and through direct decision-making.

Article 3 states:
 
Freedom, equal rights, national and gender equality, peace-making, social justice, respect for human rights, inviolability of ownership, conservation of nature and the environment, the rule of law and a democratic multiparty system are the highest values of the constitutional order of the Republic of Croatia and the basis for interpreting the Constitution.
 
Article 5 states:
 
In the Republic of Croatia, laws shall comply with the Constitution. Other regulations shall comply with the Constitution and law.
All persons shall be obliged to abide by the Constitution and law and respect the legal order of the Republic of Croatia.
 
Article 10 states:
 
The Republic of Croatia shall safeguard the rights and interests of its citizens living or residing abroad, and shall promote their ties to their homeland.
The Republic of Croatia shall guarantee particular care and protection to those parts of the Croatian nation in other countries
 
Article 14 states:
 
All persons in the Republic of Croatia shall enjoy rights and freedoms, regardless of race, colour, gender, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth, education, social status or other status.
All persons shall be equal before the law.
 
Article 16 states:
 
Freedoms and rights may only be restricted by law in order to protect the freedoms and rights of others, the legal order, and public morals and health.
 
Article 19 and Article 20 are of particular interest as they are a direct consequence to the unconstitutional behaviour I experienced this morning:
Individual acts of state administration and bodies vested with public authority shall be grounded in law.
Judicial review of individual acts made by administrative authorities and other bodies vested with public authority shall be guaranteed.
Whosoever violates the provisions of the Constitution concerning human rights and fundamental freedoms shall be held personally liable and may not be exculpated by invoking a higher order.
 
Article 22 states:
 
Human liberty and personality shall be inviolable. No one shall be deprived of liberty, nor may liberty be restricted, except when specified by law, upon which a court shall decide.
 
Article 25 states:
 
Whosoever has been unlawfully deprived of liberty or convicted shall have the right to compensation and a public apology in accordance with law.
 
Article 44 states:
 
Every citizen of the Republic of Croatia shall have the right, under equal conditions, to participate in the conduct of public affairs, and to have access to public services.
 
Article 45 – THE LAW CANNOT BE MORE CLEAR!
 
All Croatian citizens who have reached the age of eighteen years (voters) shall be entitled to universal and equal suffrage in elections for the Croatian Parliament, the President of the Republic of Croatia and the European Parliament and in decision-making procedures by national referendum, in compliance with law.
In elections for the Croatian Parliament, the President of the Republic of Croatia and the European Parliament and in decision-making procedures by national referendum, the Republic of Croatia shall secure the exercise of suffrage for its citizens with registered domicile in the Republic of Croatia who are outside its borders during elections so that they may vote in diplomatic-consular offices of the Republic of Croatia in the foreign countries in which they are located or in some other manner as specified by law.
 
I’m not a constitutional lawyer but as far as I am concerned the staff at the consulate general in Sydney have committed acts of treason and should be held accountable for their actions.
 
I am happy to talk to anybody about this you can contact me on +385 9 888 7 999 not that it matters because I don’t believe anybody will listen to me in these final hours.
Kind regards

Uredno sam, nakon udaje, prije osam mjeseci promijenila svoje prezime, a državne službe su zakazale

 
 
Ne doživljava se to samo u iseljeništvu nego i ovdje u Hrvatskoj. Naime, udala sam se i promijenila prezime u listopadu mjesecu 2018., a kada sam išla glasati na izborima za Europski parlament u srpnju 2019. (dakle, gotovo osam mjeseci kasnije) rečeno mi je da ne mogu glasati zato što nisam na popisu, pod novim prezimenom a pod starim isto ne mogu zato što mi je osobna iskaznica (koju sam zakonski morala promijeniti u roku 30 dana od udaje) na novo prezime. Uglavnom, nisam pristala na taj odgovor i pobunila sam se i inzistirala da osobe na tom biračkom mjestu  zovu svoje nadležne i vide kako mogu meni omogućiti glasanje. Dakle, sa svoje strane nisam morala ništa prijevremeno poduzeti nego se navodno elektronski sustavi nisu povezali i ažurirali moje prezime. Sigurna sam da nisam jedina koja se udala i promijenila prezime i tih osam mjeseci i pitala sam se koliko drugih su isto dobili zabranu glasanja zbog grješke u sustavu i pasivnost osoblja koje su radile na biračkom mjestu. Da se nisam pobunila i molila da se dalje raspituju i omoguće mi moje pravo, ne bih glasala. Na kraju su mi dopustili da glasam na način da im pokažem  dokument sa starim prezimenom koji sam slučajno imala sa sobom.

U konačnici sam zaključila da je loše provedeni elektronički sustav i osoblje koje je pasivno i nezainteresirano za išta osim što joj je rečeno na obuci (a to su vrlo šture informacije) uzrok jednog (ja bih rekla) većeg  problema. Lijepo sam ih zamolila da se bolje pobrinu za ovaj problem (radi drugih glasača) jer je to njihova dužnost, ne moja.
 
Kao povratnica samo želim ukazati na to da ovakvi problemi nisu samo problemi s kojima se suočavaju naši ljudi u dijaspori nego i mi koji živimo u Hrvatskoj. Često se pitam kome bi se mogla obratiti s ovakvim problemima i žalosti me što se ljudi koji se izravno bave s tim stvarima (provedbom i nadzor izbora na biračkim mjestima) često ne žele poduzeti nešto (kao i u Vašem slučaju Šime Letica). Čak su mi rekli da se boje dalje išta poduzeti iz razloga što bi možda to ukazalo na nešto što su od početka izbora trebali prijaviti a nisu. Dakle, i dalje u našoj kulturi vlada strah (kod situacija gdje ga uopće ne bih smjelo biti) i pasivnost koje u konačnici dovodi do neodgovornog ponašanja. Žalosti me što takvo ponašanje vlada u našoj kulturi i zaista se nadam da će svaki državljanin koji danas glasa glasati za onoga kojeg smatra kao najkompetentnijom osobom za iskorjenjivanje takve neodgovorne kulture naroda, a ne samo političara. Kultura (ponašanje) se u mom mišljenju može krojiti kroz ispravno vladanje zajednicom, od vrha, i ispravnim primjerom kako se treba ponašati.

Šime Lisica: Lišen sam slobode glasa

 

 

Najgore za mene je to što sam lišen slobode glasa. Kad sam u uredu generalnog konzulata, tada sam fizički u Hrvatskoj. O tome se uvijek radilo o hrvatskom ustavu i demokratskom procesu. Nije važno za koga bih glasao. Ono što je bitno jest da sam došao iskoristiti svoje pravo glasa i oduzeta mi je sloboda, prerušena u birokratski proces. Potpuno sam izvan sebe. Ne mogu vjerovati
Pitate se zašto tisuće i tisuće ljudi odlaze iz Hrvatske? Ako je uobičajena praksa da se ne dozvoli građanima da glasaju na dan izbora u svim hrvatskim konzulatima izvan Hrvatske, to bi moglo biti tisuće i tisuće glasova i presudni faktor izbora.

Našim političarima puna su usta iseljeništva, a u praksi...

 

 

Dragi Šime,
bio si na konferenciji o iseljeničkom turizmu u Splitu ove godine, pa si zato, pretpostavljam, na elektroničkoj listi drage kolegice. Uglavnom drago mi je i hvala ti što si se potrudio opisati svoje iskustvo  o nemogućnosti glasanja u konzulatu RH u Sydneyu, iako na to imaš ustavno pravo. Našim političarima i svima koji rade u službi politike, puna su usta iseljeništva, a u praksi - evo, tvoje iskustvo svjedoči da stvari stoje skroz drugačije. Pozivam te, ukoliko ti poslovne obveze budu dozvoljavale, da dođeš na 4. Hrvatski iseljenički kongres, koji će se održati od 3.-5. srpnja 2020. u Zagrebu. Bit će govora i o uvođenju elektronskog glasovanja.
Želim ti, i svima koji čitaju ovu poruku, sretan Božić i svega dobroga u Novoj!

Crtica iz 1906. godine o iseljavanju Hrvata

 
 
"Jedno od najživotnijih naših javnih pitanja jest iseljeničko. Narod bježi ovamo ne samo iz siromašnih krajeva domovine, nego i iz plodnih te bogatih. Dokaz je to, da se pozvani faktori u Hrvatskoj ne brinu za radničko i gospodarsko pitanje naroda; nastoje o tome nešto samo pojedinci, ali općega se rada ne vidi. A narod sam nije se mogao vlastitim silama podignuti pod dosadašnjim sistemom korupcije i političke potlačenosti. Taj je sistem držao učitelje i škole, činovnike i sve upravne urede u duševnoj skučenosti: slobodno misliti i govoriti nije se dalo, pa nije čudo, da je narod u takvim prilikama zaostao u radnoj vještini i trgovačkoj sposobnosti. Tereti i troškovi su pak svaki dan rasli, pa ljudi ne znadoše drugo, nego bježati u Ameriku.

A na mjesto našega čovjeka useljuje se u domovinu tudjinac.... i svaki ovaj dobro prolazi, pače se obogaćuje. Tisuće pak naših ljudi, koji ovamo dodjoše, da od zla pobjegnu, snalazi ovdje često veća nevolja, nego se i zamisliti dade."
