Zivkovic Samardzic has achieved a victory for the Crime and Corruption Reporting Network and Stevan Dojcinovic, its editor in chief, Serbia's Court of Appeals.
According to Zivkovic Samardzic, "the Court of Appeal in Belgrade confirmed the verdict by which [Serbian tabloid] Informer and its editor, Dragan Vucicevic, were ordered to pay damages in the amount of RSD 150,000 to the editor of the Crime and Corruption Reporting Network [KRIK], Stevan Dojcinovic, for violating the assumption of innocence and because its texts may cause the reader to judge and feel hatred towards Dojcinovic. In April 2016, the editor of KRIK, Stevan Dojcinovic, sued the tabloid Informer and its editor, Dragan Vucicevic, after publishing a series of lies regarding Dojcinovic and his private life. Dojcinovic requested damages for the damage to his honor and reputation, as well as for disclosing details from his private life."
The Zivkovic Samardzic team representing KRIK was led by Partner Kruna Savovic.
