A guide through legal uncertainty

Tomislav Đorđević is a businessman who, after decades of transparent and legal entrepreneurship in Serbia, had his property rights and basic human rights breached by the very institutions that are supposed to uphold them.

After suing the Serbian state for damages sustained in the privatisation process, he was arrested and falsely accused in contrived criminal proceedings.

Through collusion of the executive power, the police, the "reformed" judiciary and the media, on 6 August 2010 Tomislav Đorđević was arrested for alleged abuse of office, publicly pronounced guilty, and detained for months in unjustified pre-trial detention. Although formal charges were pressed on 3 February 2011, the trial has not yet begun.

We hope to achieve public scrutiny of this case by publishing documents from the commercial disputes between Tomislav Đorđević and the Privatisation Agency, as well as the criminal proceedings against him. The site also responds to other false accusations in the Serbian media.

This website aims not only to highlight the many peculiarities of this case, but also to explain the workings of a system which allows for independent, professional and hard working people find themselves at the mercy of their own state.
