The prosecution in Bari is due to submit the application for archiving because Đukanović, who occupies the post of prime minister, enjoys complete diplomatic immunity and cannot be subject to an investigation.
The prime minister, who appeared at the Bari Prosecution yesterday to be “questioned as part of an investigation into Mafia association with the aim of smuggling cigarettes,” put himself forward for questioned.
He was accompanied by his lawyer and interpreter, and was questioned by detectives from the Bari Prosecution.
Đukanović and ten other individuals from Montenegrin political and business circles are suspected of alleged Mafia association for the purposes of cigarette smuggling and money laundering.
The inquiry was completed last summer, and judicial institutions were to decide whether to press charges against Đukanović and the other suspects.
They include former Finance Minister and current President of the State Auditing Office Miroslav Ivanišević and former Head of the Montenegrin Trade Mission to Italy Dušanka Jeknić.
