The Serbian Anti-Corruption Agency has refused former Information Commissioner Rodoljub Sabic’s request to join the Transparency Serbia NGO as a lecturer and expert associate.
Sabic wrote on his Twitter profile that the Agency has forbidden him from lecturing on things he is expert in but gave permission to former economy and finance ministers to take up positions on the boards of foreign banks.
Mizerna i zla potvrda da su "majstori" rešeni da mi trajno zagorčavaju život sveteći se za to što sam po zakonu radio svoj posao.— Rodoljub Sabic (@RodoljubSabic)April 23, 2019
Nikad ne bih ni tražio ni primio neku od "masnih" sinekura koje oberučke dele poslušnim a oni mi ne daju da pošteno radim ono što znam. Besramni su.pic.twitter.com/8rpWOy0pWq
Under the law on the Agency, any former official is banned from working with or for any person or organization which works in the field that the official was in charge of for a period of two years after leaving the state post. The ban does not include elected officials.
Sabic requested permission under that law to work on analyses of laws regulating free access to information and speak at round tables and workshops.
