Belgrade, 17 March 2019 (MIA/dpa) – President Aleksandar Vucic said on Sunday Serbia would not allow violence to endanger anyone and that everyone breaking the law would be tried, as thousands of citizens protested against him outside the presidency building, surrounded by numerous police, Hina reports.
Serbia allows protests as long as there is no violence, Vucic said commenting on the demonstrators who last night broke into the public broadcaster’s building.
He said that with today’s press conference he wanted to show “that there must be no fear of hooligans,Â thugs and fascists, Bosko Obradovic and tycoon leaders Dragan Djilas and Vuk Jeremic… They thought I wouldn’t come her. I have no fear… I will continue to fight for Serbia.”
Citizens gathered outside the presidency building at the invitation of the Alliance for Serbia. “We won’t let Aleksandar Vucic destroy this country,” Borko Stefanovic of the Serbian Left said, calling on the protesters to remain calm and not to clash with the police.
