The investigative journalism website, KRIK has conducted a research into how much money and what assets do Serbian politicians and the members of their immediate family possess.
The research also shows what kind of jobs the politicians did in the past and who did they do business with. The research results have been published in the database format that can be found by clicking on this link – https://imovinapoliticara.krik.rs/display/ .
Each politician is assigned a profile which contains information about the real estate, cars and companies they own, as well as details about the ways in which they attained this. In the following few months, KRIK intends to expand the database to include other officials and heads of the opposition parties in Serbia.
The database also shows which politicians have participated in illegal construction and own property that still hasn’t been legalized. Then there is the information about loans they took out, persons they forged business partnerships with and offenses they have committed.
So far, the following politicians have agreed to be interviewed for the research purposes – Aleksandar Vucic, Rasim Ljajic, Zorana Mihajlovic, Vladan Vukosavljevic, Slavica Djukic-Dejanovic and Goran Knezevic. The database will be updated with four new profiles every single day.
According to the database, the Finance Minister, Dusan Vujovic is one of the wealthiest ministers. He owns two very expensive houses in the United States, in the diplomatic neighbourhood close to Washington, D.C., and three flats in Belgrade, located in the building that has been declared as cultural heritage. His properties are estimated to be worth around 3 million EUR. In the case of Minister Vujovic, it was possible to trace the origin of the money he has earned so far and the way in which he acquired the real estate he owns.
