Montenegro royals satisifed with new law

Montenegro's Crown Prince Nikola II Petrovic says he is "entirely satisfied" with a law rehabilitating his family, which was dethroned in 1918.
Petrovic's legal representative in Montenegro, Tania Turquin Spicanovic, said Friday the prince does not expect the tiny Adriatic nation to restore the monarchy, and only wants to see the new law "consistently applied."
The legislation approved earlier this month by lawmakers, recognizes the family's historic role and its male line as descendants. The law says the Petrovics were dethroned when Montenegro was "violently annexed" by Serbia.
The government has also promised to pay (EURO)4.3 million ($6.13 million) into a family fund over the next seven years, and pay Nikola Petrovic a monthly salary that equals that of the president.
