B92 has learned from the government that Beko did not have any official meetings with the government representatives.

The government has rejected Beko’s offer to buy out the Port of Belgrade. However, Belgrade Mayor Dragan Đilas has accepted it and offered Beko EUR 40mn, the same amount of money the businessman had allegedly paid for 93.6 percent of Port of Belgrade shares.

Beko said in the meantime that he was prepared to sell his shares package for EUR 74mn.

The main hearing in the dispute between the city of Belgarde and the Port of Belgrade over about 100 hectares of land has been scheduled for September 30 before the Higher Court in Belgrade.

Sources from the Serbian government told B92 that it was not unusual for Beko to come to the government headquarters and that he usually met with the infrastructure minister.
