Ratko Đokić, called Cobra (Serbian Cyrillic: Paткo Ђокић; 1940s–2003) was a Serbian-Swedish mob boss, a leader of the so-called "Yugo Mafia" or Yugoslavic Brotherhood, composed of Yugoslavs in Sweden. He owned a boxing gym in a southern suburb of Stockholm. He was murdered in May 2003, in broad daylight by hit man Nenad Mišović, sent by Rade Kotur.

Life[edit]

He was born into a Serbian Orthodox, Montenegrin family, during the late 1940s in Titograd, PR Montenegro, FPR Yugoslavia. He was the maternal cousin of Baja Sekulić, another known businessmen involved in the cigarette smuggling.[1] He was a supporter of Momir Bulatović.

On 4 February 1998, his close associate Dragan Joksović Jokso is assassinated at the Solvalla race track.[2] The hit man is a 19-year old Finnish immigrant, hired by a formed associate turned enemy Dragan Kovač Kova.[2] On 9 July 1998, Kova is killed with 40 bullets outside a Stockholm restaurant in broad day light.[2][3]

His daughter Aleksandra married Milan Sevo,[2] a notable mobster that was dubbed the new figurehead of the mafia after the death of Jokso. A lavish wedding took place in 1999, with over 400 guests, of which most are notable businessmen and criminals, including the leader of the Swedish Hells Angels chapter.

In his native country, Montenegro, he was called local Robin Hood, because of him helping people that had less.
