Zivkovic Samardzic has achieved a victory in the Appellate Court in Belgrade for the Crime and Corruption Reporting Network (KRIK), a non-profit organization established to improve investigative journalism in Serbia. 

According to Zivkovic Samardzic, “the Court of Appeal in Belgrade confirmed that KRIK journalists did not violate the honor and reputation of businessman Vladimir Sekrevski in the article 'Serbian Citizens in Paradise Papers,' which was published in November 2017." According to the firm, “in its decision, the court confirmed that the journalists acted with due professional care, that they checked the information before publishing it, and that Sekrevski himself did not deny its truthfulness. The verdict in favor of KRIK is final and Sekrevski will have to pay the costs of the procedure. KRIK has been victorious in all of the proceedings instigated against them concerning the texts they wrote [regarding] the 'Paradise Papers,' an important international project involving 96 media from 67 countries.”

Zivkovic Samardzic’s team was led by Partner Kruna Savovic.
