According to Montenegrin media, the Anti-Mafia Regional Directorate in Bari recently called for the case against Đukanović to be closed, but called for charges to be pressed against five other Montenegrin citizens who are suspected of mafia association and involvement in cigarettes smuggling between 1994 and 2002.

Charges are expected to be pressed against the serving president of National Auditing Senate and former Finance Minister Miodrag Ivanišević, Dušanka Jeknić, an adviser in the Montenegrin embassy in Ljubljana, and businessmen Veselin Barović, Branislav Mićunović and Branko Vujošević.
