In February, FIC invested a lot of efforts in standardizing the practice related to the charges of public bailiffs for enforcement of the debts to the telco operators from 2007-2012. The initiative concerns the processes transferred to the bailiffs from the courts. A letter to the Justice Ministry and the Public Bailiffs’ Chamber was sent on February 5, and a meeting was held on February 17. In a letter on February 5, FIC outlined that the operators have high and unpredictable costs, especially the costs of the cancellation of procedures, and the costs after the first advance payment. FIC drew attention to the cases in which the Public Bailiffs requested the payment for the cancellation of the procedure, even when they were informed that the case was already cancelled in the court. The issue was discussed at the meeting on February 17. It was concluded that Ministry and Public Bailiffs Chamber would issue official instruction on upfront payments, while old judicial cases where the lawsuit had been withdrawn should not be transferred to bailiffs and this will be confirmed by Supreme Court of Cassation instruction. FIC Delegation included representatives of FIC members from telecommunications sector, Daniel Susnjar, Vladimir Boljanovic and Maja Lakicevic Lolic from Telenor, Ranko Ilic from Telekom and Neda Teslic from VIP Mobile and FIC Regulatory Officer Jelena Lazarevic, Justice Ministry was represented by Assistant Minister Jelena Deretic and Public Baillifs’ Chamber by President Aleksandra Tresnjev and Dejan Pasic.
