Franz Kafka, “The Trial”
Following the arrests in August 2010 the media (B92, Večernje novosti, Blic, Politika) published claims that the company AIK Njegoš from Lovćenac, after being privatised by a company part-owned by Tomislav Đorđević, went bankrupt.
The protests of workers of this company, which were held in May 2008, are also connected with the privatisation and the bringing of the company into bankruptcy.
Insolvency proceedings in AIK Njegoš from Lovćenac were launched on 31 January 2007, the decision on bankruptcy was made on 31 December 2007.
The company DTD Food, which is indirectly part-owned by Tomislav Đorđević, bought the property of the company in bankruptcy proceedings, and not the company AIK Njegoš, on 3 March 2008 at a public auction organised by the Privatisation Agency, for an amount of 1.23 billion dinars.
At this point, AIK Njegoš was bankrupt for over a year. Worker protests that took place in May were held because of claims of the workers directed at the Privatisation Agency, which remained the owner of AIK Njegoš. In their demands, the workers ask that they are compensated for overdue wages from the funds obtained from the sale of assets to DTD Food. They estimate that after the settlement of obligations to creditors there remains some 500 million dinars, which should be used to compensate workers.
