Ana Brnabic, Serbia’s Prime Minister, said on Wednesday her government had sent an 18-page detailed reply to Freedom House (FH) latest report on the situation in Serbia which downgraded the country from Partly Free to ‘hybrid regime,’ saying it was “full of contradictions with an obvious subjective approach of a single person,” the FoNet news agency reported.
She told the state RTS TV she wondered why “Freedom House did not engage an expert team, but a person (Milos Damjanovic) who works with the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN).”
Brnabic said the reportdid not show the real situation regarding democracy in Serbia, adding “the author referred to sources and references that contradicted the content of his report.”
She said that the Government would “try to publish the reply on Thursday.”
However, he reiterated President Aleksandar Vucic’s remark, that “although the report didn't show the real situation, "there are some things that are true and we will accept some of them”
