Company that brought voters from the Republic of Srpska got huge state-funded business deals

The T&M Group Solutions Company, which used its vehicles to bring voters from the Republic of Srpska to vote in recent elections in Serbia, was given several state-funded projects as part of a consortium with other companies, in the value of 200 million euros.

The company did security and maintenance work for a series of state-owned companies – the Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS), the Serbian Post Office, the Serbian Broadcasting Corporation (RTS), the Anti-Corruption Agency, the State Health and Insurance Fund, the Customs Administration and several other state-run companies and institutions. The deal with the Anti-Corruption Agency was worth EUR 325,000. As for the Customs Administration, the company was selected to provide security services for EUR 4.23 million. In the case of RTS, T&M Group Solutions was contracted to provide security services for EUR 2.5 million.

Although, on paper, the company is owned by two companies based in the United Arab Emirates, it is managed by the former handball player Dane Šijan, who was arrested for participating in election fraud in Montenegro.

The T&M Group Solutions Company was founded in May 2022 in Belgrade. Although it doesn’t even have an official website, this company made a net profit of 250,000 dinars in its first year of operation. At that time, it had only five employees.

It is interesting that Šijan, together with other handball player Vladimir Mandić, the son of Momčilo Mandić, the former Justice Minister in the government of convicted war criminal Radovan Karadžić, was detained in Montenegro ahead of the local elections in Nikšić in March 2021. They were suspected of illegally bringing money into Montenegro and using it to help the coalition gathered around the pro-Russian Democratic Front (DF).

T&M Group Solutions drew a lot of attention recently when at least five of its vehicles were spotted on December 17the (election day) in front of the Belgrade Arena, from where unregistered voters from the Republic of Srpska were taken to various polling stations across the city to vote.
