Saturday protest in support of Krusik whistleblower Izvor: N1

Saturday’s 1 in 5 Million protest in Belgrade was devoted to Krusik whistleblower Aleksandar Obradovic and included a march to the public prosecutor’s office which brought charges against him.

Obradovic leaked documents showing that Branko Stefanovic, father of Serbia’s Internal Affairs Minister, was involved in arms deals which were allegedly detrimental to the Krusik munitions plant. He was arrested for revealing business secrets and is in house arrest after being in jail in Belgrade.  

The crowd at the protest was addressed, among others, by Obradovic’s lawyer Vladimir Gajic. The lawyer told the crowd that Obradovic asked him to thank the protesters and journalists who reported on his case because he realized he was not alone.

The protesters marched from the plateau in front of the Belgrade University Rectorate to the Public Prosecutor’s office near the St Sava temple in a show of solidarity with the whistleblower.

The protesters marched past the building where Deputy Mayor Goran Vesic lives, stopping to chant Vesic Thief and again in front of the Communal Police headquarters to chant Vesic’s Police and put up stickers saying Boycot.  They demanded Obradovic’s release from house arrest and symbolically left printouts of 300,000 Euro (the amount that Branko Stefanovic was caught with once) in front of the prosecution offices.
