Damir Mandic, 34, was the only suspect accused of shooting and killing Dusko Jovanovic, 40, outside the Dan offices in Podgorica in May 2004. He was acquitted due to lack of evidence. 'The prosecution failed to provide an argument proving that Mandic was in the car from which Jovanovic was shot,' the judge said. Jovanovic's family and colleagues packed the courtroom which was under tight security for the entire high-profile trial, as Jovanovic had been a strident critic of then prime minister Milo Djukanovic.
