Interior Ministry: Head of UKP passes polygraph test

BELGRADE -- Criminal Police (UKP) chief Rodoljub Milović has passed the polygraph test he took on Wednesday, it was announced in Belgrade late on Thursday.

The results of the "show no psycho-physiological responses to relevant questions that would indicate that he was not telling the truth," Interior Minister Nebojša Stefanovic said.

UKP Head Milović took a lie detector test on a voluntary basis on June 18, when he was asked a series of questions related to the allegations made against him by suspected drug lord Darko Šarić during his trial on Monday.

The police reacted immediately to the claims Šarić made, Stefanović told Tanjug on Wednesday, adding that a working group was formed to examine the allegations implicating Milović 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 Stefanović.

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

Šarić 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.
