Vice President of the People’s Party, Borislav Novakovic said that organised crime in Novi Sad is being led by Zvonko Veselinović and Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić’s brother Andrej, with the help of the Security and Information Agency (BIA).
In an interview for Nova, Novaković states that this is being done with the consent of Vučić.
“Organised crime in Novi Sad is led by Zvonko Veselinović and Andrej Vučić. Do you think they are doing this without the knowledge and consent of Aleksandar Vučić? In all this there is a conspiracy of silence and political promiscuity between the tops of Novi Sad’s local politics, the prosecution, BIA and public security,” stresses Novaković.
According to the Serbian politician, security officers are preventing professionals from doing their job.
The leadership of these bodies and services is making it impossible for a huge number of professionals to do their job. “Novi Sad is the only city in the country where the last two police chiefs Milorad Šušnjić and Slobodan Malešić ended up in custody, and BIA chief Nikola Vasiljević took over the management of the football club with criminal Slobodan Milutinović Snajper without a trace of shame,” he adds.
He claims that the citizens of Novi Sad will not forgive Vucic.
Novi Sad will never forgive Aleksandar Vučić for being an occupied and captured city. The city is seething with discontent because its dignity and pride are damaged by such attitudes. That is why I am convinced that the next local elections will bring change, the Serbian politician concluded.
We recall that at the end of 2021, the United States of America imposed sanctions against an organised crime group operating in the north of Kosovo, headed by Zvonko Veselinović and the Deputy President of the Serbian List, Milan Radoičić.
The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the Ministry of Finance points out that, in addition to Veselinović, they are his brother Zarko Veselinović, then Zeljko Bojić, Milan Mihajlović, Siniša Nedeljković, Radovan Radić, Milan Radisavljević, Milojko Radisavljević, Milan Radoićić, Marko Rosić, Radule Stević, Milivoje Vulović.
According to the Ministry of Finance, this group has registered 11 companies in Kosovo, 10 in Serbia, one each in Croatia and Bulgaria. They are also sanctioned by the UK.
The Treasury alleges that the group has been involved in large-scale bribery schemes with members of the Kosovo and Serbian security services, who facilitate the illegal trafficking of goods, money, narcotics and weapons between the two countries./Telegrafi/
