Bosko Obradovic, one of the leaders of the opposition Alliance For Serbia (SzS), said that he would not be invoking his immunity as na MP and would answer a summons by prosecutors to answer questions about a recent incident at the entrance to the Serbian parliament.
The leader of the Dveri movement and a group of his party activists stood on the steps to parliament, preventing ruling coalition MPs and cabinet ministers from entering the building. Obradovic was summoned for questioning about a verbal clash ensued with Health Care Minister Zlatibor Loncar and others and what has been termed a physical assault on MP Marjan Risticevic whose suit jacket was torn in the pushing and shoving.
Speaking live on the Impression of the Week talk show, Obradovic said he would not invoke his immunity, adding that he is ending his term in parliament “in the same way that I started it, defending the constitution”. He added that he would try to help achieve reconciliation. “The question is where it all ends, that hatred and that is why I am calming myself down first…. We are offering our hand in reconciliation and we see a horrifying meesage that (the authorities) are not ready to do that,” he said.
