The matter is said to have been known for a long time, but those responsible remained silent.

As the police announced, the collection of information and other measures are aimed at verifying the circumstances and confirming the existence of possible grounds for suspicion that criminal acts have been committed, in which the perpetrator is prosecuted ex officio.

They are also checking whether they have received any reports in this case (even anonymous ones that could be linked to this case), which, as they state, has not been confirmed in the check so far, except for the received report of suspected extortion due to debt, which the content and circumstances are still being verified.

The police call on all victims of alleged crimes to report the cases to the police, namely at the nearest police station, on the emergency number 113 or via the e-notification of crimes.

They also call on other people who may have information about the circumstances of the alleged crimes to report them to the police, which they can also do on the anonymous police phone number 080 1200 or via an anonymous e-report.

The police do not disclose which case it is, and, as they say, due to the protection of personal data, they cannot answer questions relating to specific or identifiable natural persons.

In the last few days, some media have written about accusations of alleged sexual and financial abuse, which are directed at the Novi Sad cultural figure and representative of the Society for Modern Culture Fotopub Dušan Josip Smodej. A Dušan Smodej Against Violence page was also set up on Instagram, where they publish anonymous testimonies of their experiences with him. According to Slovenske novic, Smodej denies the accusations.
