Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Thursday condemned the Molotov cocktail attack on the home of a local journalist in a Belgrade suburb, saying that Serbia will deal with violence.

Vucic tweeted that he condemns the attack in the fiercest way and called the police to find the attackers as soon as possible.  

“I most sharply condemn the attack on Milan Jovanovic and his property and expect the prosecution and police to find the perpetrators of that crime in the shortest possible time. Serbia has the strength and will deal with bullies, regardless of who they are or which side of the political spectrum they are on,” the president wrote.  

Unidentified attackers threw Molotov cocktails into the Jovanovic family home on the night of Tuesday-Wednesday and then fired shots at the front door. The house, garage and the family car were completely burned out in the attack.

Serbian Internal Affairs Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic confirmed on Thursday that the fire in the home of a local journalist was started deliberately and added that the police and prosecution have to find the attackers. The minister said journalist Milan Jovanovic had given a statement to the police which will be followed up with interviews with people that he named.
