Dan (newspaper)

Dan (English: The day; Serbian Cyrillic: Дан) is a daily newspaper published in Montenegro. Its first issue appeared on December 31, 1998. It claims heritage of the old day Montenegrin daily newspaper that was published in the old Montenegrin state.

Right from the start, Dan was one of the harshest critics of Milo Đukanović's regime in Montenegro.

At around 11:45pm on May 27, 2004 its founder and editor-in-chief Duško Jovanović was assassinated on a Podgorica street in front of Dan offices. Even though a prolonged police investigation produced a couple of arrests, along with an immediate assassin-suspect currently on trial, the individuals behind the murder have still not been identified.

Furthermore, on July 11, 2005, an unindentified male left an explosive device in front of the paper's Podgorica offices. Luckily it did not activate.

On June 3, 2006, Montenegrin state prosecutor Vesna Medenica decided to press charges against Dan columnist Dragan Rosandić due to the first post-referendum text in his regular column. The charge claims that through his piece Prokleta avlija, Rosandic "exposed to ridicule the peoples, national and ethnic groups of Montenegro that voted for Montenegrin independence". The charges were later dropped as unfounded.
