Njegos's clock, which is listed on the list of treasury values sent to the National Bank of Yugoslavia, signed in 1975 by the then director of Cetinje Museum, Stanislav Rako Vujosevic, is exhibited in the vault of the Cetinje Monastery, said the National Museum of Montenegro.
Last year, a technician in the information center of the National Museum Aleksandar Berkuljan filed a criminal complaint, stating that Njegosev's clock, ornamented with brilliants, disappeared from the National Museum.
The museum stressed that his disappearance caused the Montenegrin public's interest, pointing out that Njegos's clock was neither registered in the books of the National Museum's inventory nor in Njegosev's museum.
"In the book by Jevto Milovic," Njegos in picture and words "there is a photo of the clock with the legend below - Njegos's room clock, but without explaining where it was shot or where it is placed. We remind you that in Njegos's Museum there is a clock from the 19th century, which was donated to the National Museum of Montenegro by the antiquarian Dusan Ivanovic from Paris, who visited Cetinje in 1986 and, as it was then written in the press, sent this valuable gift one year later to the National Museum of Montenegro," said the National Museum.
As stated, the fact is that these two clocks were not recorded in the statutory books, which created additional problems in the work of the Audit Commission.
"The National Museum of Montenegro will, in the forthcoming period, carefully review all the recorded and reported deficiencies of museum material, in order to initiate processes in the competent authorities for all the missing items," said this institution.
