While railing against the “evil cartels in the Western Balkans”, the leader of the citizen movement GG Dosta je Bilo, Sasa Radulovic, was secretly investing the taxpayers’ money in a Western European fund, thus breaking the law.
This was discovered by the Anti-Corruption Agency, which led to the launch of criminal proceedings against him by the Prosecutor’s Office.
“No sovereign state needs the IMF or the World Bank,” Radulovic had recently stated. However, the Anti-Corruption Agency found inconsistencies during the audit of the annual financial report of the political movement, Dosta je Bilo for 2017 and 2018.
Based on the investigation, it found that Radulović invested in the investment fund of a Western bank, i.e. those he ruthlessly criticized, a total of 20 million dinars, from which he generated profit twice.

This was not his personal money, as the Anti-Corruption Agency report shows, but was paid to him from the account of the Dosta je Bilo movement, which received those funds from the state budget because the movement had MPs at that time.
According to data from the Anti-Corruption Agency, on October 17, 2017 Radulovic allegedly withdrew 20 million dinars in cash from the account of Dosta je Bilo, and then on the same day, as a private individual, joined an investment fund by investing that money.
At the same time, he agreed that the money would be paid out to him as a monthly salary, which is not true, considered that he put the bank account of Dosta je Bilo on the application form submitted to the investment fund. Since Dosta je Bilo is a political civil movement no monthly salaries are paid out.
On January 25, 2018, he invested five million dinars with the aforementioned investment fund, and then on February 8 of the same year, he again invested the same amount. It did not take him long to decide on a new transaction, so on February 23, 2018, he invested six million dinars again and on March 15 of the same year, he invested the remaining four million dinars.
These are considered illegal dealings because according to the Law on Financing of Political Activities, Dosta je Bilo is a civil group and not a political party and under no circumstances has the right, as the Anti-Corruption Agency states, to make a profit from investing with investment funds.
