Abstract: In this paper we discuss spectral properties of the Schroedinger operator $ - \Delta + q$ on compact homogeneous spaces for certain complex valued potentials $ q$. We show, for instance, that for these potentials the spectrum of $ - \Delta + q$ is identical with the spectrum of $ - \Delta $.
