Podgorica – On Kraljeva plaza in Milocer in Sunday afternoon people were not allowed to come in because Milo Djukanovic, president of the Democratic party of socialists was resting there.
The personnel of the beach told that to the professor of Science – Mathematics faculty PhD Vladimir Jacimovic and they have told him to go with his wife and his daughter to some other swimming resort.
We couldn’t even see the beach because they told us that Djukanovic is swimming there. We were told that by the personnel who is protecting the beach and from the people charging the entrance – said for Vijesti Jacimovic professor of linear algebra.
Main tourist inspector Bozo Vucekovic said for Vijesti that KRaljeva plaza has always been under a special regim when statesmen would come. At the remark that Djukanovic no longer is a statesman Vucekovic replied: “Certain public persons, no matter are they in some state service or not – are still of great importance”.
The fact that PhD Jacimovic is a University professor had no importance in front of the entrance on Kraljicina plaza in Milocer.
The personnel, he says conditioned his entrance with 50 euros for him and his family, even though the leaser of the beach has to free half of the beach for those who do not want to pay easy chairs and parasols. Jacimovic said that on Kraljicina plaza he saw only 15 easy chairs.
Inspector Bozo Vucekovic said that until Thursday they weren’t familiar with who is the owner of those beaches so he wasn’t able to call anyone for irregularities and failures.
After several months of waiting Singapore company Aman resorts has signed in Thursday a contract with Morsko dobro and has started to take care of Kraljeva, Kraljicina and beach on Sveti Stefan.
Vucekovic said for Vijesti that now they now who owns the beaches and that there will be no problems. What the inspectors have found they’ve found – it matters what will happen tomorrow – said the main tourist inspector.
PR manager from Amans office in Hong Kong, Anjali Nihalchand said yesterday that that firm has officially started taking care of the beaches. That was waited for months because Morsko dobro has insisted that three swimming resorts along the Aman hotels Milocer, Sveti Stefan, and Kraljicina plaza have to remain public and hotel beaches.
Local people from Pastrovici were reprimanding because in the meantime the beaches were neglected. Representatives of Local community of Sveti Stefan have warned Ministry of tourism and Morsko dobro that three elite swimming resorts are a real derision and 100 years old parks have become public toilettes. From Aman they said that because of the ban of construction during the tourist season they are planning to renew the hotels Sveti Stefan, and Milocer in September and to ruin the hotel Kraljicina plaza on whose place they will build another hotel.
Aman has taken over the management of the hotels on January 31st in accordance with the signed contract about the long-term lease and investments.
From Morsko dobro they have announced for today a statement for public on the occasion of signing of the contract about the management of the beaches next to Aman’s hotels.
BEACHES ARE PUBLIC GOOD
In special rule book about the management of beaches which is singed by Minister Predrag Nenezic it says that fencing, aggravation or conditioning or any other way of disabling of free approach to the swimming resort is forbidden but it also says that for swimming resorts of special significance a special regime of work can be determined.
At the question according to which law at the moment Kraljeva plaza is being managed main tourist inspector Vucekovic said that that will be defined with the contract with Morsko dobro.
Director of Morsko dobro Rajko Barovic said in April that there is no Montenegrin beach on which a citizen or a tourist won’t be allowed to enter, because the beaches are public goods.
