The defense of the president of the Atlas Group, Dusko Knezevic, has filed a criminal complaint with the Special State Prosecutor’s Office (SDT) against the special state prosecutor Milivoje Katnic because he did not act according to the law regarding the destruction of official documents, the Atlas Group announced today.
“After the parliamentary elections, in the period from August 31, 2020 to December 4, 2020, Katnić did not take the actions provided by law, which he was obliged to take as the chief special prosecutor and did not initiate criminal proceedings against civil servants of the National Security Agency (ANB). and civil servants of the Government of Montenegro, who destroyed official documents in the period from the parliamentary elections until the formation of the new Government of Montenegro.At the time when the official documents were destroyed, the Chief Special Prosecutor was aware that officials of the ANB and the Government of Montenegro were destroying official documents. , and that is why he is charged with committing the criminal offense of Abuse of Official Position under Article 416, Paragraph 1 of the Criminal Code “, said lawyer Zdravko Đukanović.
He added that the High Court in Podgorica held a hearing in the “Envelope” case, in which the accused Slavoljub Stjepovic and Dusko Knezevic, but that the court did not serve a summons for the hearing, while as Djukanovic claims, Nemanja Jolovic could not attends the hearing, of which he informed the court.
“It is obvious that both the prosecution and the court are in a hurry to file an illegal and meaningless indictment at any cost, in which the SDT accuses Dusko Knezevic of organizing a criminal group that would take money from Dusko Knezevic through Slavoljub Stjepovic. The defense will take action due to the illegal hearing. In this criminal proceeding, as everyone except Milivoje Katnić knows, it is true that Duško Knežević was forced to finance the DPS through Slavoljub Stjepović, while Chief Special Prosecutor Milivoje Katnić pressured Duško Knežević’s drivers to give false statements in to which they would make incorrect claims that they exchanged money by order and for the needs of the Democratic Front, “Djukanovic said. The Atlas Group said that it was determined in the criminal proceedings that there was no criminal responsibility of Knezevic’s drivers, and they also said that SDT and Katnic were still holding Vlatko Rasovic hostage, who has the role of an associate witness.
“In this criminal procedure, the Defense of Dusko Knezevic will propose the interrogation of Milo Djukanovic, the President of Montenegro, on whose order the Chief Special Prosecutor acted, as well as the officers of the Special State Prosecutor’s Office who know that Milivoje Katnic took the described actions. The truth is clear and inexorable: Dusko Knezevic did not organize a criminal group, but Milo Djukanovic organized a criminal group to take Dusko Knezevic’s money, Slavoljub Stjepovic took 97,000 euros for his personal needs and the needs of the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS), and the actions of Milivoj Katnic and his DPS clients criminal acts that as such must be prosecuted before the prosecutor’s office, which will be ready to perform its function provided by law, “Djukanovic said.
