“Introducing these professionals will be very important with regard to resolving complicated financial inquiries”, Mirjana Mihajlovic, the adviser with the Ministry told Beta news agency.

Mihajlovic explained that appropriate analysis would be conducted in order to define both - how many forensic economists would be needed and their training.
