Money for pro-Russian and pro-Serb parties arrived through Vucic’s businessmen
A huge amount of money entered Montenegro in the previous weeks to finance local elections, about which the agents of the National Security Agency provided numerous data, but the new ANB management does not react. They allow Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić’s people to freely bring in money for pro-Serbian and pro-Russian parties and buy elections – Pobjeda’s sources from ANB warn.
The Montenegrin secret services are once again in the hands of the “Russian and Serbian network” after outgoing Prime Minister Dritan Abazović sacked former ANB acting director Sava Kentera on 7 September.
He appointed Boris Bata Milić, once a very close associate of the previous director – the pro-Russian and pro-Serbian cadre Dejan Vukšić – as the head of the Agency.
Kentera’s dismissal followed two international operations involving our Secret Service, one of which was the dismantling of a Russian spy network. Several alleged Russian diplomats were then expelled from Montenegro and decisions were taken to ban some Serbian citizens from entering Montenegro.
On the list of those who, according to the Agency’s assessment, cannot go to Montenegro is the owner of Adria Television, Bratislav Stojiljković, a man who has been in our country for a long time and who was brought back from the airport in Tivat yesterday.
Stojiljković is one of the key people of Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić for regional activities, and recently he is the owner of several media outlets in Montenegro, among them Adria TV, and, according to the Montenegrin intelligence service, he is one of the main financiers of the pro-Russian and pro-Serbian Democratic Front. .
Yesterday, M Portal recalled that Stoiljković was recently in America together with outgoing Prime Minister Dritan Abazović and attended a media briefing, although he is not a journalist.
Stoiljković’s TV Adra favours Abazović as much as possible in news and special programmes, not only through the activities of the Prime Minister in his technical mandate, but also through the activities of his Ura.
– In recent days, Belgrade has stepped up actions to funnel money to buy votes for local elections in Montenegro. They are bringing in huge amounts of money. The modus operandi is that the money is brought by businessmen who are connected to the authorities in Serbia and they also have business here – sources from the National Security Agency told Pobjeda.
Adria TV reported yesterday that the ban on Bratislav Stoiljković’s entry into Montenegro is a continuation of the persecution of “Serbian citizens initiated by the ANB while Savo Kentera was in charge”.
– Furthermore, the ban on Stoiljković’s entry into Montenegro is just one of the attempts to obstruct Adria TV, which is in the process of acquiring a national frequency – according to that company.
They pointed out that the viewership of their TV and the readership of their portal in Montenegro disturbed “certain structures at the top of ANB”.
– Stoiljković is Vučić’s most dangerous agent in Montenegro. “He has covered” almost all media, expanded the network of influence, so that through him Vucic and BIA have a completely covered media space in the country – sources of Pobjeda from ANB say.
KNEZ IS IN THE MONTENEGRO
ANB operatives also recorded that Serbian businessman Srđan Knežević, also known as Knez, was in Tivat on Monday and Tuesday. According to the Forbes list, he is one of the richest Serbs, the owner of the company Knez Petrol and is considered a collaborator of the Serbian BIA.
– Otherwise, he is related to the Voždovac clan, i.e. “Zemunci” – say Pobjeda sources.
Knežević’s predecessors are his associates who arrived in Montenegro a few days before him and, according to ANB operatives, brought money for the elections.
In September, Knežević was interrogated at the prosecutor’s office in Belgrade, in the special anti-corruption unit, for the criminal offence of fraud in business operations.
The serbian newspaper Republika then announced that Knezevic had been involved in many affairs, including war profiteering, and that he had been questioned on the basis of the „Medijska mreža“ d. o. o, within which the newspaper “Srpski telegraf” operates.
That newspaper pointed out that Knežević had been convicted of oil smuggling in 2016, but had nevertheless retained his licence to carry out the business of importing and selling oil.
– The owner of “Knez petrola” is one of the actors of the oil mafia, which with the smuggling of this derivative harmed the state with excise duties and taxes for about 100 million dinars. The process lasted nine years. All the convicted were accused of importing kerosene and JET A1 from Greece from January 13 to May 25, 2007, as part of a large oil smuggling ring, presenting them as raw materials for the production of paints and varnishes, which is why no excise duty was paid, and that the fuel was then sold as diesel D2 – the Republika reported.
BABOVIĆ IN PLAV
These days, the head of the Nišava district, Petar Babović, was visiting Montenegro. Pobjeda’s sources from ANB claim that he was in Plav for several days.
– He entered and left Montenegro illegally because he is also on the list of people from Serbia who are banned from entering the country. He is a very important person for financing the elections in Montenegro and is one of Vučić’s main people for Montenegro – our sources point out.
According to them, Babović has already approached Ura and is finishing “work for them”.
Babović was also in Montenegro in Budva in September, when the Party of Freedom and Justice from Nis responded by asking “is the head of the Nišava district on a party assignment in Montenegro, where he and other progressives from Niš are ‘helping’ partners in the campaign for local elections in Budva”.
They also asked if councilor Miroslav Đokić, employee of JKP “Vodovod” Dušan Mihajlović, employee of JKP “Tržnica” Olivera Đorđević and employee of JKP “Parking servis” Jelena Denić were with him.
On 26 September, the city’s RTV sent questions to the National Security Agency, the prosecutor’s office and the police directorate about the allegations of the Freedom and Justice Party from Niš about the stay of officials from that city in Montenegro, but they did not receive any answers.
In February 2021, the most widely read Niš portal ” Južne vesti” announced that Babović had been in this city all the time before the Niš elections and that he had organised the arrival of members of Serbian progressive party from Niš who had helped DF in the election campaign.
At the time, several Serbian citizens were detained in Nikšić and expelled from Montenegro, and Babić, according to this portal, escaped arrest by sheer luck – he was not in the same hotel where his colleagues were.
Members of Vučić’s party were expelled from Nikšić before the elections – Vladimir Vojvodić (38), Jelena Denić (41), Olivera Đorđević (38), Jelena Nešić (41), Andrijana Stanković (26), Bojan Delić (22), Vuk Mladenović (23). ) and Nikola Aleksić (35).
According to available data, Petar Babovic was born in Montenegro and is a doctor by profession.
THE ROLE OF KRMAR
These days in Montenegro was also Željko Krmar as Vučić’s emissary.
– He has previously managed elections in our country. He was in Herceg Novi before the local elections in that city last year – ANB sources told us.
According to them, in the previous days Krmar had meetings with some representatives of pro-Russian and pro-Serb parties. They met at the Regent Hotel in Tivat.
– They have all these data in the Agency and they are not taking any action – the ANB interlocutors told Pobjeda.
On October 15, the police did not let two of Vučić’s men – Vladimir Mandić and Dane Šijan. According to the police decision handed to them, there are national security reasons known to the ANB, which is why they cannot go to Montenegro. Both Mandić and Šijan are members of Vučić’s Serbian Progressive Party.
As we wrote earlier, the two have been entering Montenegro unhindered for years, bringing huge sums of money to Vučić’s political allies.
Before the 2021 elections in Nikšić, they were detained on suspicion of bringing in money and buying votes.
Mandić was recently detained in Bosnia and Herzegovina, also on the eve of the elections there. Along with him, Adam Šukalo was detained, and, as the media in Banja Luka reported, they were detained on suspicion of buying votes for Jelena Trivić and Draško Stanivković’s Party of Democratic Progress.
The DF condemned the exclusion of Stoiljković.
The Democratic Front yesterday condemned the ban on Bratislav Stoiljković from entering Montenegro.
This political alliance said it condemned what it said was the new mistreatment of Serbian citizens by the Montenegrin authorities.
They said that someone wants to return the situation in Montenegro to the time of discrimination and the spread of hatred towards everything that is Serbian or comes from Serbia./Pobjeda/
