The opposition Alliance for Serbia (SzS) organised another anti-government protest in Serbia’s northern city of Novo Sad on Friday, this time in support of the whistle-blower Aleksandar Obradovic who remained in house arrest after his appeal was turned down, the Beta news agency reported.
Obradovic was arrested at work in the munition Krusik factory after revealing details about some dubious business in the company linked to the father of Serbia’s Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic.
He was secretly kept first in house arrest, and later in Belgrade Central Prison for some 20 days before the media broke the news.
“This is in support of the whistle-blower who returns the dignity to Serbia,” Svetlana Kozic, an MP said.
Miroslav Vasin said it was humiliating that “instead of Minister Stefanovic, his father and others involved in the trade of arms that ended with ISIS terrorists, the regime arrested the man who it believed had uncovered them.”
