Montenegro: President Đukanović will be questioned because of “Pandora papers”

The special state prosecutor of Montenegro, Milivoje Katnić, announced that he would treat the President of Montenegro, Milo Đukanović, like any other citizen, if a well-founded suspicion were established about the allegations about his offshore company.

“If it is determined that it exists, in England, Switzerland or another location, we will make a decision based on that. If there is a reasonable suspicion, he will be treated like any other citizen, we will ask for the immunity to be lifted “, said Katnić in the show Načisto on Television Vijesti.

In a TV duel with the director of the Network for Affirmation of the Non-Governmental Sector (MANS) and the head of the Expert Team of the National Council for Fighting High-Level Corruption, Vanja Ćalović Marković, he said that the Đukanovićs had a joint business that failed and someone wrote off 120 million.

Katnić added that they would investigate because there is a suspicion and that he cannot present the content of the evidence, reports the Vijesti portal.

“We asked for documentation and sent a letter to Djukanovic to provide us with the answers he gave and to give us a statement. We will also send it to his son “, said Katnić, adding that he respects Đukanović because he is the president of the state.

Ćalović Marković said that Đukanović certainly did everything to hide that he was the owner of the trust in the offshore zone. She said that they expect the institutions to check why the trust was made. Ćalović Marković said that the Prosecution knows where the documents are and how to find the account.

In the documentation of the leading law firm in Panama, Alcogal, MANS found certified copies of the trust establishment agreements that the Đukanovićs concluded on June 21, 2012, with CM Skye 2 (PTC) Limited, registered in the British Virgin Islands.

Trusts have been established for a period of 80 years, and the company that manages them is authorized to buy and sell real estate and companies on behalf of Djukanovic, open new companies and giro accounts, give and take loans and perform various other tasks.
