Head of Criminal Police Directorate takes polygraph test

BELGRADE - Head of the Criminal Police Directorate Rodoljub Milovic underwent polygraph testing on Wednesday concerning the allegations made against him by Darko Saric, defendant in a high-profile drug trafficking case.

The police reacted immediately to the claims made by indicted drug lord Saric during the trial against him in the Special Court, Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic told Tanjug, adding that a working group was formed to examine the allegations implicating Milovic in criminal activity.

"I expect the working group to investigate all claims in the shortest possible legally defined time, and the public will be informed about the results," said Stefanovic.

Acting upon the request for gathering essential information, filed by Prosecutor for Organized Crime Miljko Radisavljevic, the working group will take all the necessary measures to examine the credibility of Saric's allegations, MUP stated in an earlier release.

Saric and members of his criminal ring are being tried in the Belgrade Special Court on the indictment for smuggling 5.7 tons of cocaine from Latin America to Western Europe.
