Serbia’s former Defense Minister Dragan Sutanovac said that it’s hard to say whether current Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin had illegally gained access to private emails or if he has a para-security political structure doing that for him.
Sutanovac told Nedeljnik weekly the whole thing should be looked into by state institutions. He said that “it’s hard to say who the target of these illegal measures was but considering the reaction, false accusations and the anger in the statements by Vulin, I have no dilemma that I was the subject of the illegal activities which does not mean that Nedeljnik was spared the same measures”.
“Investigators have to determine precisely who gained access to private emails. This isn’t the only case. This is actually the only case in which someone revealed themselves like an amateur, the other cases mainly ended with me knowing that this was happening but without any way to prove it,” he said.
Writing in an article for this week’s issue of NIN weekly, Sutanovac said the hope is that Vulin will be dismissed. “In any democratic country, this scandal would lead to the resignation of the president. We should hope that the defense minister will be dismissed and processed under the Constitution and the law for the sake of the freedom of every citizen and the values that this society should be nurturing,” he wrote.
