The leader of the opposition "That's Enough" movement (DJB) Sasa Radulovic said on Tuesday he would file charges against Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic since the country's Constitutional Court rejected his appeal in which he accused Vucic of insults and slender, the Beta news agency reported.

 "A serious question was put before the Constitutional Court concerning the equality of all citizens before the law, but also one of the violations of freedom of expression and the President's and his ruling Serbian Progressive Party's (SNS) position above the law," a DJB statement said.

It added the Constitutional Court "didn't want to decide on Sasa Radulovic's appeal," what, according to the movement, "means it transferred such an important issue to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg as it has done several times before, bringing the state at risk to be subjected to humiliation and mockery before the international institutions."

The statement said that "Radulovic, advocating the preservation of democratic institutions in the country, had to turn to the court in Strasbourg after domestic courts legitimised those violations."
