Dukanovic's thugs assault opposition leader in Montenegro

February 20, 2010

PODGORICA, MONTENEGRO -- Montenegro's leading opposition politician, Nebojsa Medojevic, was physically assaulted outside his home Saturday, according to local media reports.

The attacker threatened to "liquidate" Medojevic, he told a press conference, DPA reported.

Police have arrested the alleged attacker, reported local media. The arrested man is a close relative of another man whom Medojevic has regularly characterized as an organized crime leader. Medojevic called the attack "classic Mafia-style intimidation."

Medojevic has often accused the government of Montenegro's prime minister, Milo Djukanovic, of protecting criminal structures, especially the drug mafia.

Similar incidents of violent attacks on public figures are widespread in Montenegro, where the ruling DPS is known to suppress any opposition movements by illicit tactics. Djukanovic is known to have orchestrated many such abuses on people and groups that oppose his strong-handed rule by ruthless means.
