Since the last update on 28 May, the Administrator of Monego has made principal repayments of € 486 057 and interest repayments of € 13 913. We are working with the liquidator in order to receive information on the next transfers of repayments to investors on Mintos. We will share more, once we have further information from the liquidator. In the meantime, Monego shareholder is awaiting the decision of the Supreme Court of Kosovo about the case of temporary security – the suspension of the decision of the Central Bank of Kosovo for Monego. If approved, the shareholder of Monego will regain control of the company and its operations while the court reviews the second case of the same decision being unlawful.
Although the case is at its final stages, unfortunately, Covid-19 had also put implication on the execution of work of the Courts in Kosovo, therefore, the decision has been delayed. In case the decision is in favour of Monego shareholder, the company immediately will regain control over Monego. If the outcome is not in favour of Monego shareholder, the next step is to approach the Constitutional Court which is expected to review the case within a month upon receiving the claim.
