Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said in an interview for Euronews that there have not been and will not be “horrific attacks and murders” in Serbia, like there have been in Slovakia, Malta and recently in Montenegro, where a journalist of newspaper Vijesti was injured.
According to his statement, “one part of our media and civil society is dissatisfied for some reason”, and he is very ready to listen to them in an effort to “find the best solutions for everyone”.
“But, please, buy tomorrow’s newspapers and tell me if they attack someone more than me,” he said.
Interestingly, according to the Independent Association of Journalists of Serbia, over the last ten years there have been nearly 600 physical attacks, threats or cases of pressure exerted on journalists in Serbia.
