This outcome is likely after his company - Delta Holding - on Monday posted the bail the court set last week as the Serbian dinar equivalent of EUR 12 million.

The Belgrade Special Court, however, has not received evidence of the money being deposited, court spokesperson Dušica Ristić told Tanjug. Mišković's company announced at around noon CET that the money had been paid.

Once the court receives evidence of the deposit, it will order Mišković's release.

Mišković has been in custody since December 12, 2012.

The EUR 12 million bail is the highest ever in the Serbian justice system, 12 times higher than the second highest, paid by former president of the Serbian Football Association Zvezdan Terzić.

Mišković is also forbidden to leave his place of residence and has to report to the police on the first workday of each month. His passport was also confiscated.

Once Mišković is released, only Nibens Group owner Milo Đurašković will remain in custody. Mišković's son Marko has been under house arrest since April, while the remaining indictees were released pending trial.

The prosecution suspects they stole RSD 16.95 billion from road construction companies and RSD 472 million from the national budget.
