The Serbian Interior Ministry confirmed that it has arrested a famed mafia man from the 1990s, Aleksandar Kristijan Golubovic, on suspicion that he had organised a drug trafficking group. In a joint action, Belgrade’s police and Serbian security agency, BIA, on Saturday arrested six members of the criminal group, including Golubovic, accused of illegally producing and selling drugs. Three of them were arrested while exchanging drugs in front of a Belgrade Orthodox church.
Some 100 grams of heroin was found during the action, along with 100 grams of paracetamol, a measuring scale, several mobile phones, and a gun.Golubovic was one of the main mafia men in Serbia during the 1990s, portrayed in a popular 1996 documentary on the Serbian underworld entitled „See You in a Obituary“. Today, he is one of only few individuals, out of dozens featured in the movie, who is still alive. In 2002, Golubovic escaped from a Greek prison Malandrino where he was serving a 14-and-a-half-year sentence for stealing two Mercedes-Benz cars and an armed robbery.The arrested are believed to had been distributing drugs from the town of Novi Pazar to Belgrade. A package of heroin and paracetamol would be sent from Novi Pazar to the home of Milanka Golubovic, Kristijan’s mother, in Belgrade. She would then break the drugs down into smaller packages and Kristijan would allegedly give the drugs to someone to sell.During the arrest, police also found weapons in illegal possession at Golubovic’s place.

Police have taken property valued in the tens of millions from organised crime figures with plans to sell the goods and use the money to fund social programmes, such as new kindergartens, schools and primary health care facilities.
Serbian Justice Minister Snezana Malovic said on Sunday (January 17th) that 21 financial investigations against 208 organised crime suspects have been launched since the law allowing the measures went into effect in March.
It defines property eligible for confiscation as that whose legitimate origin cannot be proven, putting the legal burden squarely on the suspects rather than the prosecutors. During the process, defendants cannot sell or give away their property.
Driving home the point, Malovic spoke in front of about 30 luxury cars — Porsches, Audis and BMWs — seized by the authorities.
„Those vehicles have been confiscated from individuals who have not spent a single day working and have never done any kind of legal business,“ said organised crime prosecutor Miljko Radisavljevic, noting that most property has been confiscated from drug traffickers.
Especially damaging to Serbia and its economy, Radisavljevic said, is that crime money was being invested in private companies and the housing industry.
Confiscated property includes the former headquarters of the Zemun gang, whose members were convicted of assassinating Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic in 2003. Part of a residence owned by Milorad Ulemek, the architect of Djindjic’s murder, was temporarily seized and may be confiscated permanently in court.
Noting that 2010 will be a big year in Serbia’s war against organised crime, Interior Minister Ivica Dacic said police busted seven organised crime groups last year. About 1.3 tonnes of narcotics were seized in 2009.
