Podesta Group's defense of Serbian economic corruption

Since 2013, the Podesta Group has represented two companies run by Miroslav Miskovic, a Serbian billionaire recently convicted of tax evasion charges stemming from a multi-million-dollar embezzlement scheme.[1] Public records and statements by Miskovic companies reveal that they enlisted the firm’s services in early 2013.

It was around that time that Miskovic ran into serious legal trouble.[2] He was arrested on suspicion of tax evasion and abuses of power in December 2012. The following May, a Serbian court handed down indictments against Miskovic, his son, and nine others allegedly involved in the embezzlement scheme.

According to Serbian journalist Tatjana Tagirov,[3] prosecutors in the case identified a network of companies they alleged were involved. They included Delta Holding, a Miskovic conglomerate working in a host of industries including real estate, retail, and exporting, and Hitomi Financial, a more opaque company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands.
