Local opposition official arrested in southern Serbia Izvor: N1

The opposition Dveri movement said on Friday that one of its local officials had been arrested in the southern Serbian town of Kursumlija.

A press release said that the arrest of Dveri local council member Oliver Milosavljevic was an attempt by the authorities to exert political pressure and intimidate the opposition.

“This is more proof that we were right to demand a normalization of the situation in Serbia and a dialogue. We have the president calling for a physical conflict with opposition leaders one day and the arrest of an opposition council member on another day and we can’t talk about a normal atmosphere in society,” it said.

The official reason given for Milosavljevic’s arrest is the “recording of a session of the school board” at a local elementary school, the press release said and added that the meeting was open to the public.

Dveri recalled that Milosavljevic is one of the people who launched the 1 in 5 Million protests in Kursumlija, the first place to organize protests after Belgrade.
