Montenegrin Internal Affairs Minister Filip Adzic said that, at this time, there is no organized attempt to threaten the safety of Montenegrin Prime Minister Dritan Abazovic.

“What we currently have as information is that there is no organized group that is trying to threaten the Prime Minister’s safety in an organized fashion. Are there individual cases? That is something we will learn once all the activities of the competent state bodies are carried out,” Adzic told Radio Free Europe (RFE).

Adzic said he spoke with Abazovic who, as he said, informed him about “many details”.

“Institutionally we acted immediately. The special purpose police sector sent requests to all operational sectors and local security centers for the submission of data on threats,” Adzic said, adding that the National Security Agency has also been notified and is expected to submit a new assessment.

Prime Minister Abazovic informed the police that groups close to the arrested officer of the National Security Agency (ANB) Petar Lazovic and his father Zoran, a former high-ranking police official, are targeting him as the main culprit for the arrest and planning some kind of retaliation, Vijesti reported.
