The wife of the late Serbian warlord Arkan appeared in a Belgrade court this week to face charges of insulting and attacking a boss of a Serbian club.
The queen of local folk music Svetlana Raznatovic, better known as Ceca, is already serving eight months under house arrest as part of a plea bargain for pleading guilty in an illegal sale of players from her late husband's club. The plea deal from May saw Ceca agree to pay a €1.5m fine for embezzling millions gained from the players' transfer.
Ceca was married to the notorious Zeljko Raznatovic, better known as Arkan, until he was gunned down in a Belgrade hotel in 2000. But Ceca continued to manage his club while allegedly maintaining connections with Serbian crime bosses and former paramilitary leaders.
She makes Karren Brady look like a pussy cat.
