Mišković arrest: Anti-Corruption sweep starts in earnest
Impoverished and disappointed with living in post-Milošević, transitional Serbia, its citizens have been watching for years how a small circle of businessmen gained huge riches, spread their influence to almost all relevant political parties and even – if one believe what is said after each and every elections – directly affected what parties would form the government.


Miroslav Mišković (FoNet, file)
For all that time the politicians (many of them directly connected with big capitalists through interest or finances) had been repeating ritually that they were determined to tackle the systemic corruption and the economic crime. However, all of that, with some minor exceptions, remained just talk.

Until Wednesday, when the current government made the most radical move so far regarding the issue and arrested the most powerful and most influential local tycoon, the owner of Delta Holding Miroslav Mišković.

The fact that the investigation of some parts of Mišković’s wide-spread business operations started during the mandate of the previous government (although it is a question how enthusiastically they did it) eliminates in advance possible objections that there are any political motives behind this move of the authorities, as it is implicated in the first reports of some Western media outlets. The fact that this move will inevitably have political consequences is yet another issue.
