Podgorica – Vice president of Democratic party of socialists Svetozar Marovic said yesterday that he is not takin part in the open competition for the Center of military – health institutions Meljine.
– I have nothing to do, and I am in no way connected or am I taking part in that open competition – said Marovic for “Vijesti”
He said that he is “entirely for the transparency of the process of privatization in Montenegro”.
Open competition documentation for the military – health complex Meljine for now Atlas group, the ownership of Dukso Knezevic and Switzerland Company Jupiter Adria have bought up.
“Vijesti” have published that behind Jupiter Adria stands Dr. Milovan Bojic former vice president of Government of Serbia, JUL, and minister of health, and Vijesti” published that in this deal he has strong logistics in Montenegro, in the person of Svetozar Marovic.
Marovic recently said that he plans to be in the business, and among other things he plans to get included in the area of health “with opening of the most modern diagnostics center in Budva and in Montenegro”.
Company Jupiter Adria, based on the available data, is the ownership of the firm Jupiter International PLC from Bermudas. In that case, the ownership structure or who is behind the company can hardly be established firmly.
Information, however, can be found from various sources, for e.g. from the people directly involved in particular privatization, but also from those who influence on economic and other flows in Montenegro, and who no doubt come in contact with the potential buyers or their representatives.
Milan Bojic, born in Kolasin, more and more often stays in Montenegro. Often for his deals he is using Switzerland, where the company Jupiter Adrias is registered.
Complex in Meljine, for which obvious there is a great interest, has about 50.000 square meters of land, and 19 facilities, of surface of 23.000 square meters. Atlas group, as “Vijesti” have published, if they get the military – hospital center would invest together with partners from Arab Emirates.
For Atlas and for Switzerland firm, as well as for other possible domestic interested parties a problem can be the strict open competition terms for the purchase of Meljine.
The offers, as it is said in the open competition terms which were issued by the Ministry of finances, will be accepted if the investor submits the evidence that he is in health work for at least 10 years, and that he has the year turnover of at least 50 millions of euros in the last three years. Because of that the open competition will be very interesting. It is not rare that in Montenegro a buyer can use the option of forming a consortium with someone who fulfills the open competition terms, and who basically does not have to be the one having the last word to say in that consortium.
