Serbian Radical Party (SRS) leader Vojislav Seselj trampled a Croatian flag and swore at a Croatian delegation in the Serbian Parliament, his party said on Wednesday.

  The press release said that Seselj toppled the pole that the flag was on at the entrance to parliament, tried to rip it up and then trampled on it with another SRS MP. “Five members of the security staff of parliament could not take away the flag and pole,” it said.  

Seselj then walked into the lobby, telling the Croatian Parliament delegation that he “trampled on the Ustashi [a Croatian WW 2 nationalist fascist military organization] flag” and swore at them.  

None of the reporters and media crews present in parliament reported that they witnessed the incident. Seselj, an ultra-nationalist politician, was recently convicted of war crimes by a UN tribunal.

His party MPs on Tuesday verbally assaulted a Democratic Party MP who called for his expulsion from parliament following the conviction.
