Montenegro Press Review – November 21, 2014

Top police officers arrested over corruption. Montenegro seeks to boost ties with diaspora. Dynamics of implementing priorities from EU package exceeds our expectations, the miniser says.

The commander of the Kotor police Aleksa Prascevic, inspector for foreigners Dejan Ilickovic and former chief of security in Kotor Zoran Brdjanin, have been arrested on Thursday. The Police stated they were arrested on charges of corruption. Director of Police Slavko Stojanovic dismissed Brdjanin from the position of the chief of security department in the town of Kotor in June.

Montenegro’s cabinet on Thursday approved the Bill on Montenegro’s Cooperation with Emigrants regulating the manner of exercising and strengthening the collaboration, protection of emigrants’ rights and interests and measures and benefits upon their return to Montenegro. Establishing links, relations and cooperation with emigrants is an inseparable part of national development, as well as of the process of regional, European and Euro-Atlantic integration of Montenegro, Vladimir Radulovic of the Foreign Affairs Ministry told the press.

Dynamics of implementing the five priorities from the EU package exceeds our expectations, among other things, thanks to Montenegro’s Assembly, which has put a set of anti-corruption laws into quick procedure, Montenegro’s Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Minister Dusko Markovic said at the meeting of the Working Group of the Enlargement and Countries Negotiating Accession to the Union, COELA.
