Zlatibor Loncar, Serbia's Health Minister, said on Tuesday, that President Aleksandar Vucic did not end up in a hospital because of journalist's questions but due to "tiredness and his exposure to work," adding that the President's condition was much better, the FoNet news agency reported.
Loncar added Vucic's health was not damaged "because of some TV (N1), a journalist, or questions."
He thus denied ill-intended comments by some officials and pro-regime journalists and experts who indirectly accused an N1 reporter of causing President's health problem by insisting on whether Vucic knew about a whistle-blower claims regarding dubious arms trade deals linked to the father of Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic.
"The health condition of Aleksandar Vucic is much better today, but he will have to change the way of life and work and to take the therapy regularly," Loncar added.
He said Vucic reacted well to the prescribed therapy, but that on Friday the situation with a heart problem was far from naive and that his life was endangered.
Loncar added Vucic himself paid the price for what he had been doing, since "his health has been deteriorating for a long time."
"He has not cared about himself at all, he was trying to be everywhere to fight for better Serbia," Loncar said.
Vucic left the Military Academy Hospital on Monday after three days of treatment following his cardiovascular problems.
In the meantime, his associates and pro-regime media continued to accuse N1 TV and its reporter Miodrag Sovilj of indirectly engendering the President's health by asking questions about the findings by the whistle-blower Aleksandar Obradovic.
On Sunday night, besides labelling Sovilj, Suzana Vasiljevic, Vucic's media advisor, told the pro-regime Pink TV with national frequency a number of untrue information about N1, describing it as anti-Vucic media.
