After 23 years, police have successfully solved the murder of Jagodina journalist Milan Pantic and an indictment is forthcoming, Zivojin Rakocevic, the president of the Association of Journalists of Serbia, stated on June 10.

“The police have solved the case quite clearly, which is why we expect and insist that charges be filed,” Rakocevic told the Vecernje Novosti daily, for which the late Pantic once worked.

Pantic was murdered by blunt trauma to the back of the head in front of his apartment building on June 11, 2001. He had been returning home from a quick run in his slippers to buy bread.

The journalist had previously reported on multiple cases of corruption and abuse of office in the Morava valley area, providing particularly in-depth coverage of the privatization of Paracin’s cement plant and Jagodina brewery.
