Djukanovic Used Immunity in Cigarette Smuggling

Book: Djukanovic Used Immunity in Cigarette Smuggling

Francesco Forgione, a former Italian MP who led the Italian Parliament’s Anti-Mafia Commission from 2006 to 2008, says Montenegro’s Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic has not testified more often before an Italian court in a long-running tobacco smuggling case because he is being protected by immunity that his position gives him.

In a book titled ‚Mafia Export‘, published in Italy in December, Forgione sheds light on organised crime, citing the Montenegrin mafia and Djukanovic as one of the organisers of intenrational cigarette smuggling between 1994 and 2000.

Forgione added that court proceedings on the issue have to be completed soon.

According to a document at the Bari court in charge of the proceedings, for almost a decade, „Montenegro has been a haven for illegal trafficking, where criminals acted with impunity, while the ports of Bar and Kotor were used as logistic bases for motor boats, with protection which was guaranteed by the government.“

By 1999-2000 the illicit trade was worth several billion dollars annually, according to EU and US agencies.

The prosecutor at Bari’s court, Giuseppe Scelsi, has included Djukanovic in the investigation due to his alleged role in the smuggling.

The trial began in November 2001. Djukanovic was in Bari in March 2008 answering questions from the prosecution. Soon after that, the case in relation to him was archived.

„Judge Anna di Mauro refused the request for the issuance of a warrant to arrest Milo Djukanovic only because he had presidential immunity,“ the Forgione’s book reads.

Scelsi earlier announced that Djukanovic could be tried for his alleged involvement in cigarette smuggling once he leaves politics. “Milo Djukanovic is being protected by immunity while he is the prime minister and chief of state. The moment he no longer has immunity, he will be able to be tried in a special procedure, different from the one that involves seven citizens from Montenegro and Serbia, which began on November 11,” Scelsi told Podgorica daily Dan in November.

The Montenegrin prime minister said that he did not use his immunity when testifying before the Italian courts and that he will be suing Scelsi who used the immunity “as an emergency exit from the uncomfortable circumstances of leading a ten-year investigation without arguments.”

A court in Bari announced in November that a decision on possible court proceedings against a group of nationals from Montenegro, Italy and Serbia over their alleged involvement in the cigarette smuggling ring will be discussed on 18 January.

Dirty money financed Montenegrin club

BERN — A Swiss indictment on cigarette smuggling in the Balkans says that money gained in this way financed a well-known Montenegrin sports club.

The prosecution in the Swiss town of Bern claims that part of the illegal gains made by a criminal group of cigarette smugglers, made available in Switzerland, financed basketball club Budunost from Podgorica.

At the time, the club had strong results on the European level, with Veselin Barovi as its president at one point.

The indictment specifies that large sums of money were paid to the bank accounts of head coaches and players, including Miroslav Nikoli, Milenko Topi, Saša Obradovi, Vladimir Kuzmanovi, Dejan Tomaševi and others.

Two men identified as Franco del Tore and Paolo Savina obtained exclusive licenses for cigarette transit from Montenegrin authorities in the 1990’s.

Now the Swiss prosecution claims that Del Tore paid millions to Zetatrans company and the state-owned firm Montenegro Tobacco Transit in transit taxes, but that payments were also made to now Montenegrin PM Milo ukanovi, his family members, ministers and aides.

Zetatrans, in charge of transporting cigarettes, is believed to have received USD 120mn.

This indictment mentions Milo ukanovi, Stanko Suboti, Branko Vujoševi, Veselin Barovi, Goran Rako
evi, Milan Petrovi, Dušanka Jekni and Žarko Markovi, as well as a number of other Montenegrin officials.

Rehn: Crime biggest obstacle for Montenegro

28 November 2008

EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn said yesterday that corruption and organized crime were the main obstacles on Montenegro’s EU path.

Rehn said that Montenegro would decide on its own when to apply for EU membership, adding that the EU Council of Ministers would have more important things to discuss at its December session, such as the financial crisis and the challenges facing the EU.

Rehn told Podgorica’s TV Vijesti that Montenegro was “progressing generally” on its EU path, especially in the fields of the judiciary and the rule of law, adding that issues such as “tackling corruption and organized crime” still remained the country’s main challenge.

The EU expects Montenegro to go to greater lengths in tackling these issues, Rehn said .

„The harder Montenegro clamps down on corruption and organized crime, the bigger its chances of making more progress,” Rehn said, adding that membership could not be achieved “before the country conducts major reforms.

„This means that the ball is in Montenegro’s court, in a certain respect,” he said, adding that there was a right time for everything in life.

Organised crime and corruption

Montenegro has an unsavoury reputation as a haven for smuggling and organised crime, and for the corruption of its public officials. Much of this relates to the troubled decade of the 1990s, when the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (the rump of the old Yugoslavia consisting of Serbia and Montenegro) was under international sanctions. The collapse of Yugoslavia had brought federal subsidies to a sudden end, leaving Montenegro with a cash crisis. The smuggling of fuel and other goods from Albania became part of its survival strategy, bringing with it a range of social ills that have taken many years to bring under control.

To gain hard-currency earnings, Montenegro engaged in a complex, multinational tax-evasion scheme politely termed the “cigarette transit business”. International smugglers would bring huge shipments of cigarettes bought in Switzerland, Belgium or other Western countries to Montenegro, often by plane to Podgorica airport. The cigarettes were then shipped to the port of Bar and loaded on speedboats for shipment to Italy, where they could be sold on.



Eine aufrechte Frau die EKD-Chefin Käßmann, bringt die Auslands Einsätze der NATO auf den Punkt

 Die kriminellen Geschäftemacher und Lobbyisten aus der Politik und als billige Nachplabberer der Georg Soros Zirkel, kritisiert diese aufrechte Frau, was nicht verwundert.

Bischöfin Käßmann: „Mehr Phantasie für den Frieden“

Die Politik weicht aus – die Kirche mischt sich ein: Nach acht Jahren Nicht-Debatte über den Bundeswehreinsatz in Afghanistan treibt ausgerechnet eine Bischöfin die Politiker vor sich her. Jetzt will Margot Käßmann sogar dem CDU-Vorstand den Weg weisen.

Berlin – Wann entfaltete die Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland (EKD) zuletzt eine solche Wucht? Seit mehr als zwei Wochen diskutiert die Republik erregt über eine protestantische Predigt. Margot Käßmann hat sie an Neujahr in der Dresdner Frauenkirche gehalten. Nichts sei gut in Afghanistan, hatte die EKD-Ratsvorsitzende all jenen zugerufen, die die Lage beschönigten. Sie forderte „mehr Phantasie für den Frieden“. Und in einem Interview betonte die Bischöfin, der Krieg am Hindukusch sei „so nicht zu rechtfertigen“.

Das Besondere daran? Nichts. Denn Käßmann, die seit zwei Monaten an der Spitze der Evangelischen Kirche steht, hat sich in der Vergangenheit nicht anders geäußert.

General Ante Gotovina at the trial (ICTY)
A Zagreb county court began hearing on Tuesday an investigation about war crimes committed in the village Grubori, near Knin, in August 1995 during the military operation code named Oluja (Storm).

The court heard the first five of about 70 witnesses that will be called, according the media.

Zeljko Sacic, wartime special police deputy commander and four other former members of the special police – Frano Drlje, Berislav Garic, Igor Beneti and Bozidar Krajina, who are currently in custody, are being investigated for crimes committed against Serb civilians. They were arrested in mid December 2009.

The witnesses were questioned in a closed session and details of their statements were not made public.

The court said earlier that witness hearings would continue on 18 January, when the next hearing is scheduled. The highest sentence for war crimes in Croatia is 20 years imprisonment.

Followng the arrest of the five suspects, a group of former special police force members went out on the streets of Zagreb to protest.

According to the indictement prepared by the International War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague, five elderly people – Djuro Karanovic, Milos Grubor, Jovo Grubor, Marija Grubor i Milka Grubor aged 45 to 90 – were killed in Grubori on 25 August, 1995 and more than 20 houses were burned down. The bodies were found by UN forces in the region the same day.

The International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia, ICTY, in The Hague indicted for the same crime generals Ante Gotovina, Mladen Markac and Ivan Cermak, who are currently on trial. Zeljko Sacic was Markac’s deputy during Operation Storm. The ICTY trial started in March 2008.

Operation Storm was conducted by Croatina armed forces together with the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The goal was to overtake parts of Croatia and Bosnia that were under Serb control since 1991. It began on 4 August, 1995. In Croatia, 5 August is celebrated as a national holiday……
