Milorad Grcic: Partisan Director a Step Backward

According to the Sept. 5 edition of the Nova daily, the criminal complaint against former Elektroprivreda Srbije director Milorad Grcic has been dismissed. Grcic had been accused by the Ministry of Mining and Energy of malfeasance leading to the near collapse of Serbia’s power utility late last year.

A statement explaining the dismissal of the charges said that criminal proceedings for said mismanagement are already under way against Grcic’s subordinates and that there is no evidence indicating Grcic’s complicity or that he was anything other than simply said employees’ CEO.

The charges pressed by the Ministry of Mining and Energy alleged Grcic had abused his office and acted ultra vires.

Asked to comment on the news, Mining and Energy Minister Zorana Mihailovic stated that her ministry has still not been notified that the complaint against Grcic was dismissed. “That decision may be legal, but it is certainly neither logical nor just,” she told Prva TV.

Mihailovic recalled that Grcic had first been director of the Kolubara Mining Basin, then the CEO of the publicly-owned power utility, and that the mismanagement of both led to last year’s power grid collapse causing serious damages to the state and the public.
