Stevo Cubric, 70, from Serbia’s northern town of Nova Pazova, pleaded guilty to writing threatening letters to N1 television staff and the leader of the opposition Popular Party Vuk Jeremic and was sentenced to eight months in jail in a deal with the prosecution, the Belgrade media reported.

The court also ordered him a compulsory psychiatric treatment in a health institution, the prosecutor’s spokesperson Ivan Markovic told the state Tanjug news agency.

During the trial, Cubric was confirmed to be suffering from “diminished capacity.”

He confessed he wrote the threatening letters to both N1 and Jeremic during the post-arrest hearing.

N1 received a letter on February 4, in which Cubric said its journalists and their families would be harmed, and the TV building blown to pieces.
