Nikola Jovanovic, Alliance for Serbia whip in the Belgrade City Assembly, said on May 22 that "a white paper on crime and corruption in Belgrade" was being compiled as a foundation for establishing criminal accountability of city officials over the past six years.
"The case of former city planner Milutin Folic, who is selling apartments whose building he made possible by changing city plans while in public service, is one of the individuals who will be scrutinized, as will the role of his bosses, Sinisa Mali and Goran Vesic", Jovanovic said in a talk with residents of the Belgrade municipality of Zvezdara according to a press release from the People's Party.
Jovanovic, vice president of the People's Party, stressed that one of the first orders of business for his party and the Alliance of Serbia after the regime in Serbia changes would be an independent prosecutor's office to deal with high-level corruption using the "Romanian model".
Jovanovic added that it was clear from the documents of the Business Registers Agency and the KRIK Crime and Corruption Reporting Network that "Folic violated Article 38 of the Law on the Anti-Corruption Agency, traded on his influence and committed other felonies, on which the future independent prosecutor's office will weigh in".
As head urban planner of the City of Belgrade, Milutin Folic helped build some of the largest housing developments in the capital. Today, he sells units in those housing complexes through his privately owned agency, the KRIK website has reported.
