“Attacks on journalists are a fact of life in Montenegro. Since 2004, media freedom organizations have recorded 76 cases, of which a majority remain unsolved. A month before the attack on Lakić, a bomb exploded near the home of another investigative journalist at Vijesti, Sead Sadiković. In 2013, a blast shattered glass at the paper’s offices, clearly targeting editor in chief Mihailo Jovović. Also that year, assailants threw an explosive device into the yard of Monitor journalist Tufik Softić. And the 2004 murder of Duško Jovanović, editor in chief of the daily Dan, remains unsolved 14 years later.” (Freedom House)


“Prime Minister Duško Marković received Robert Heinrich Weber in an inaugural visit of the German Ambassador to Montenegro.

As announced by the Government, Markovic congratulated him on his new duty and welcomed the government in his name, reiterating his gratitude to Germany for supporting our country in the process of European integration and NATO integration.

‘During your predecessor, [Hansa Ginter],  Montenegro entered NATO. I believe that in your mandate Montenegro will become a full member of the European Union,’ Markovic said, reiterating that, after joining NATO, the country’s foreign policy priority is EU integration.” (translated from Vijesti)
