Justice Minister Drazen Bosnjakovic said before the start of the government's meeting on Friday morning that the new distraint law reinstated the court jurisdiction over enforcement proceedings, and the legislation should make those proceedings faster and cheaper.

"Some of the jurisdiction is transferred back to courts in compliance with the Court of the EU ruling," he said.

The minister explained that the digitised form of the decision on enforcement would make the process faster.

Also, a list of types of income that could not be subject to enforcement is extended.

For instance, Christmas bonus, holiday allowance, Easter bonus and some other entitlements outside the base pay cannot be subject to enforcement.
