The Appellate Court in Belgrade has granted the appeal of Serbian business magnate Miroslav Miskovic made by his counsel, including JPM Senior Partner Nenad Popovic, and reversed the decision of the Higher Court in Belgrade (Organized Crime Unit), clearing Miskovic of charges of abuse of office and reversing a guilty verdict against him on tax evasion charges.
According to JPM, "By this ruling Mr. Miskovic has been finally acquitted of the abuse of office charges, whereby the Appellate Court ordered a retrial in respect of the tax evasion charges."
Miskovic is a Serbian businessman, investor, and owner of Delta Holding. He is reported to be the second richest person in Serbia.
Popovic was one of the two members of Miskovic’s defense team, assisted by JPM Tax Department Partner Nikola Dordjevic during the appeal preparation phase.
