Dear friends of chess,
We wish to inform you that on 5th August 2014 the Chess Federation of Montenegro filed a criminal complaint against the Executive Director of the ECU and its former President Vladimir Šakotić for the abuse of the official position and financial damage he inflicted to the Chess Federation of Montenegro.
Along with criminal complaint evidence was attached on basis of which there is a reasonable doubt that the Chess Federation of Montenegro during the year 2013 was financially damaged by more than €100,000.
State authorities have been conducting investigation by the legal duty already for several months.
The organization of the European Youth Chess Championships in Budva was characterized by a lack of transparency, conflict of interest and speculative behavior in the opinion of the Directorate of Sport of Montenegro as well.
Chess Federation of Montenegro strives that all chess events should be followed by the transparent and professional organization which includes clear conditions.
Angelina Vuković, President
Chess Federation of Montenegro
