Corruption trialEdit

On 3 September 2010, The Anti-Corruption Council of Serbia publicized a list of persons facing criminal charges related to the privatization of the Port of Belgrade company. The criminal complaint was filed three months earlier against 17 persons for abusing their official position during the 2005 privatization. Among them are Bubalo, officials of the Privatization Agency of Serbia, and businessman Milan Beko.

The trial started in July 2014.[1] He pleaded not guilty to all charges, denying allegations of power abuse.[1] On 26 December 2017, Bubalo and other prosecuted officials were acquitted of all charges.[1]
