Krištan was detained along with two others. They are believed to have illegally gained RSD 80 million.
The Higher Prosecution in Pančevo ordered two employees of the Vojvodina Putevi (Roads) public company to be placed under arrest.
They have been identified as Vladan Vidić and Milivoje Durković.
Krišan is charged for violating the Law on Public Procurement and making payments to Vojvodina Putevi 25 percent higher than the market value of the works the company performed building local roads.
The overall value of the jobs awarded to the company was in this way inflated by RSD 80 million.
