OPERATIVE MEMO

SUBJECT: PT "CRNI"

On 23/SEP/1995, at our initiative, a conversation was conducted with xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The conversation was conducted between the hours of 9:30 and 11:00, and was concerning the cultural cooperation which the People's Theatre of Kumanovo had commenced with the theatre from the city of Ćustendil, Republic of Bulgaria, at the beginning of this year, followed by concerns regarding his contacts with PT "Crni".

In the course of the conversation, among other things, concerning the cultural cooperation with the theatre from the city of Ćustendil, xxxxxxxxx said that in the beginning of this year there was an initiative from the Bulgarian side, which specifically called for an exchange of plays between the two theatres. The plan also was to include the theatre from the city of Leskovac, SR Yugoslavia. In the early part of the month of March the theatres from the cities of Kumanovo and Leskovac had been the guests to the theater of the city of Ćustendil with one play each, but since then there no meeting has taken place, nor have plans been made for the future.

Concerning PT "Crni" xxxxxxxxx said that for a some time now, he has not been visiting his restaurant "Baba Cana", because 2-3 ago, when he stopped by frequently, he noticed that beside the staff, there were no guests inside and he was meeting on {Remainder of page missing}

Since PT "Crni's" heart attack his business started to fall off rapidly, so the textile manufactory "Snežana i Sinovi" has been closed for more than 9-10 months, as well as the mushroom farm. The restaurant "Baba Cana" also is about to be terminated, while the business that he [Petrovski] was doing with Ukraine, Serbia and the Republic of Bulgaria has dropped by about 90%. Recently xxxxxxxxxx heard that PT "Crni" was intending to sell all of the property he owns in Kumanovo, but, whether that is true or not, for sure could not tell.

The regular customers of the tavern "Baba Cana" with xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx were regulars: his [the Source's] brother xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, Paskal Mitevski, owner of a private company, and Mome, nicknamed "Macan", employed at FZC "11th October" in Kumanovo. His formerly recurrent frequenting of PT "Crni's" tavern, "Baba Cana", was not as a result to his personal connection with any of the aforementioned persons. PT "Crni" did not have the habit, as far as he knows, to engage with or to sit with his guests. The same [Petrovski] was in constant motion and had no closeness with these people. Often while xxxxxxxxxx was frequenting "Baba Cana", he could see Kiro nicknamed "the Bulgarian" xxxxxxxxxxx [the Source from OM# 16, from 15/Feb/1994] for whom xxxxxxxxxx thinks that the same is somewhat closer to PT "Crni" as opposed to the previously mentioned persons.

No other intelligence was obtained from the conversation.


OPINION OF THE OPERATIONAL WORKER:

We consider the findings and information presented by xxxxxxxxxxxx to be correct, however, we also estimate that they are rather superficial, since we believe that the same has at his disposal more concrete intelligence regarding PT "Crni", but, the same [the Source] is circumventing them and is unwilling to present them.

Lately xxxxxxxxxxxx has been quite stressed out and has expressed great dissatisfaction (as a member of VMRO) from the party's activities so far. The same [the Source] wanted to see more energetic activity from the party, and as a result of his disappointment he was intending to leave this party, because of which he started to distance himself from PT "Crni" as well.

Although the findings presented are superficial, nevertheless our opinion is that they are interesting, because they contribute to our following of the general circumstances at "Baba Cana" and "Snežana i Sinovi", ownership PT "Crni", as well as regarding his plans and future intentions.
