Serbian ruling party MP sued for slander by opposition leaders Izvor: N1

Two Serbian opposition leaders have sued an MP from the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) for slander, the Beta news agency reported on Tuesday.

Dragan Djilas, a former Belgrade mayor and now leader of the opposition Alliance for Serbia, sued Marko Parezanovic an MP from the western Serbian town of Cacak over an interview to the Morava Info web portal.

In the mid-September interview, Parezanovic claimed that “Djilas offered 50,000 Euros to two local assembly councilors from the ruling majority in the town of Gornji Milanovac if they stopped coming to assembly sessions”. Djilas denied the claim a few days later at a news conference in Cacak.

The SNS MP was also sued for slander by Dveri movement leader Bosko Obradovic who is demanding 300,000 Dinars (1 Euro – 118 Dinars) in damages for the “untrue accusations” made by Parezanovic at a news conferenc in Cacak.

Parezanovic said that Obradovic laundered the money he got from the authorities for his presidential election campaign.
