Will Djukanovic be Prosecuted?
BARI, ITALY -- Will Montenegro's Premier, Milo Djukanovic be prosecuted by an Italian court once he resigns from his post? The possible court ruling of an international cigarette-smuggling ring that occurred between 1994 and 2000 will be re-examined in Bari, Italy after Djukanovic steps down as Montenegro's Prime Minister.
The list of defendants includes seven Italians, two Serbs, and five Montenegrins, including Djukanovic. Unfortunately for Italian officials, Djukanovic is protected by immunity while he is serving as the chief of state, and all prosecution directed at him is shelved for a special trial that will happen once he leaves office.
