Minister announced, ministry doesn’t know what he is talking about

Minister of Finances Siniša Mali stated in April 2019 that study of justification of constructing the national football stadium will be finalized by 10 May 2019. TS requested  from the Ministry of Finances by the beginning of May information–to whom, how, in which procedure was entrusted drafting of study, copy of documentation about drafting of study and the study itself.

Six months later, after the complaint to the Commissioner, TS received the answer of the Ministry of Finances that they do not have the study, nor any other requested information, or document.

Although Minister announced with extreme certainty and confidence finalization of the study, obviously, Ministry of Finances doesn’t know whether some other ministry or some other state organ has the study.

Namely, in compliance with the Law, when one doesn’tpossess the document with requested information, he/she is obliged to inform the requester "who has, by its knowledge, the requested document".

Otherwise, estimation of the expenses of constructing the stadium varied from 70 to 250 million of euros, and President of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić announced construction of "7 or 8 stadiums".
