NebojÅ¡a MedojeviÄ‡, of the leaders of opposition in Montenegro, has repeated his accusations against the Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo ÄukanoviÄ‡.
MedojeviÄ‡, who has announced that the opposition in that country, including his Movement for Change, would unite, told B92 that there was evidence that ÄukanoviÄ‡ in 2005 called on his immunity in order to avoid a cigarette smuggling and money laundering investigation launched by the Italian Ministry Of Justice.
He also claims that the investigation of the murder of the Croatian publisher and journalist Ivo PukaniÄ‡ “will lead to Montenegro”.
â€œThe charges brought up in Zagreb read that PukaniÄ‡ was murdered because he had been writing about the criminal groups and mafias in the region. The most powerful criminal organization in the Balkans today is the one operating in Montenegro. Not because it is powerful by itself, but because the state and state services are behind it, and because it has enormous capital,â€ MedojeviÄ‡ claims.
â€œIf the cartel is ready to spend EUR 100mn to finance the biggest shopment of cocaine this year in both Europe and the world, than one can only imagine how powerful they are,â€ he continued.
â€œMister PukaniÄ‡ was one of the witnesses in the trial in Bari and he is not the first witness to be liquidated, nor is he the first journalist to be killed for writing about the Tobacco Mafia. DuÅ¡ko JovanoviÄ‡ was also murdered in Montenegro,â€ stated MedojeviÄ‡, in reference to the slain editor of Podgorica’s daily Dan.
