The Krusik munitions plant said on Thursday that alleged disinformation about its business operation was having a negative impact on possible future deals.
Krusik was in the focus of attention recently after a whistleblower was arrested for leaking documents which showed that the father of Internal Affairs Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic was involved in the purchase of munitions at privileged prices by the privately-owned GIM company.
The Krusik management responded to claims by the opposition Alliance for Serbia (SzS) about GIM debts to the plant, saying that all the goods delivered had been paid for. “The salaries of Krusik employees are paid regularly along with all taxes and dues. Krusik is not facing bankruptcy but is continuing to grow and develop,” a statement said. It included a table of financial results for the years 2014 to 2018.
The SzS called Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin to explain what was happening with Krusik, adding that it had learned that the plant is facing serious financial difficulties.
