Criminals Must Remain Behind Bars

What is lacking in order for the public to believe that this is really a showdown and not just another media manipulation is the revealing of links between these criminal groups and politics, which portals have been researching and reporting on for years.

Exactly 100 days after the war against the mafia was included in the exposé of the new Government of Serbia, it seems that the state has finally started its showdown with organised crime, and it doing so from Veljko Belivuk’s group, which is close to the Kavač Clan. The media report constantly and in great detail on the arrests of members of this group, exposing horrific details of the crimes they’ve allegedly committed, as well as their connections within the police and judicial system.

However, what is lacking in order for the public to believe that this is really a showdown and not just another media manipulation is the revealing of links between this criminal group and politics, which portals have been researching and reporting on for years.. It is worth reminding readers that the state previously arrested masses of famous names in its actions, such as Rezač, Skener, Tsunami et al, after which indictments were not filed and most of those arrested were released and allowed to go home without an epilogue. Taught by these experiences, citizens should wait to see criminals behind bars after trial, instead of handcuffed in front of television cameras.

Although Jovanjica was visited by prominent names, including the current interior minister, there are no names from the world of politics included in the indictment in this case either

These events around Velja Nevolja has, however, cast the Jovanjica case into the background. Another indictment was recently confirmed in this case, which established that the alleged world-class drug lord, Koluvija, had associates in the police, the Security Information Agency and the military services. It looks as though this case is really composed like a “healthy, systemic story“, as one of the accused described in an intercepted conversation. Unfortunately, there are no names from the world of politics included in the indictment in this case either, although Jovanjica was visited by prominent names, including the current interior minister.

What Serbian citizens want to see are results in the fight against organised crime, given that public opinion polls show that organised crime is top of their list of internal security challenges. The European Union also wants to see this, with final indictments in cases of organised crime also included on its list of priorities regarding Serbia’s progress towards EU accession. Let’s hope that this Government will not disappoint them all, despite its pre-term mandate.
