Protest in front of Appeals Court Izvor: N1

A group of NGOs organized a gathering in front of the Misdemeanor Appeals Court in Belgrade to protest the arrests during the anti-government demonstrations in the Serbian capital.

The protest was organized by the Academic Solidarity Network, Women in Black, Civic Resistance and the Democratic Party (DS) as a representative of the Alliance for Serbia (SzS) whose lawyers provided legal aid to the people arrested over the past few days.  

DS leader Zoran Lutovac called judges to stop being the service of the regime. “Many judges are behaving in that way because they are under pressure from the authorities,” he told reporters. Lutovac said the protest was organized in front of the court to encourage all the honorable people in the judiciary to stick to the law.  

Retired Supreme Court Judge Zoran Ivosevic told the gathering that judges should no longer be appointed by parliament because that leave them open to political pressure.
