Serbian cops flee threat from gangsters
Belgrade's Blic newspaper reported Monday that Rodoljub Milovic, chief of staff for criminal offenses at the Interior Ministry, and Slavisa Sovtic, chief of operational analytics of the Belgrade police, were on a private visit to relatives two weeks ago when the Podgorica mafia found out they were there.
They were near Kotor, where accused drug kingpin Darko Saric has estates. Milovic and Sovtic have been investigating Saric's gang and arresting his associates.
Sovtic also investigated the 2003 assassination of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic by organized crime, and his life was considered in danger.
