The leader of the Movement of Free Citizens (PSG) Sergej Trifunovic sent a letter to the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) parliament group criticizing them for rejecting an opposition draft law on the medical treatment of children outside the country if that treatment is not available in Serbia.
The letter, which he handed in to the parliament registrar’s office, said that they made a circus of parliament and turned themselves into “slaves with no character”.
“You could have adopted a law which would allow sick children to get treatment where it is available. You decided that is not necessary, that the money should be spent on other things and refused to vote on the law,” Trifunovic said in front of parliament.
He told reporters that he would like to hear MPs explain why they didn’t adopt the law. “Tell us why there is no money to treat children and tell us what there is money for so that we can know what’s more valuable than the lives of children or is the only sin the fact that the draft law came from the opposition and the children are collateral damage,” he said.
Trifunovic said the letter was delivered on Social Justice Day when the Parliament Children’s Rights Committee is scheduled to meet.
