4 days ago, I published a post regarding upcoming “Holy drug dealer - women hunter festival”. Here is an update.
Prahladananda Swami replied to my email:

Dear Hanuman dasa,
Please accept my greetings and the blessings of Lord Krishna. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Thank you for the information. I asked the temple board to clarify who can lead kirtans in the temple for such festivals.
The Sannyasa Ministry is communicating with SNS about his relationship with Bhanunandini dasi.
Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada, Prahladananda Swami

Thank you for your reply.
If anything is done regarding this issue, if “not so representable” kirtan leader is removed, please let me know so that I can correct my website.

Ok, this email looked promising, as if he will actually do something about it. Additionally, his disciple Patita Pavana has confirmed the same thing on facebook.
So, as a further proof that ISKCON management if completely incapable of solving even gross deviations, I can say that nobody send me any updates after initial promise to resolve situation. I was not informed about solution of this issue by either Prahladananada Swami, by Temple board, or by anybody else.
I am writing this article now, at saturday, festival has already started, current time is 11:34 AM, on the official ISKCON website in Croatia, drug dealer women hunter bhajan leader is still announced.
It’s worth mentioning that Additional responsibility, along with Prahladananada Swami, falls on the ISKCON Zagreb temple board members which he personally selected:
Isvara Puri das, disciple of Sacinandana baba, potential svarupa name: Ramesh prema manjari devi dasi
Govindananda das, disciple of Sacinandana baba, potential svarupa name: Ramesh sakhi devi dasi
Suvarna-bindu das, disciple of Bhakti Vaibhava Swami, potential svarupa name: Ramesh tattva devi dasi
Never accept as diksa guru someone who is tolerating drug dealer - women hunter bhajan leaders and in this way is disgracing Srila Prabhupada.
