Serbian President says he wants to be first investigated for money laundering Izvor: N1

I would like to be the first subject of the investigation following the adoption of the Law on the Origin of Property, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said Saturday while visiting the construction site of a Covid-19 hospital near Belgrade.

“We passed a very important Law on the Origin of Property and in this regard, I would like to be the first subject of the investigation”, Vucic said following the Finance Ministry's money-laundering investigation against some NGO's, media outlets and individuals.

He noted that the Money Laundering Prevention Commission must do their job and that “no one can be above the law.”

Speaking about Croatia's Deputy Prime Minister and Serb representative Boris Milosevic, whose presence was announced at the marking of the anniversary of Operation Storm, Vucic said he was "not thrilled" by it, but that the people of Croatia "have their ideas, and perhaps stronger arguments".

He said that Serbia and Bosnian Serb-dominated Republika Srpska entity would mark the anniversary of the military-police operation "Storm," during which more than 200,000 Serbs were expelled from Croatia, and over 2,000 were murdered and disappeared and that a memorial would be erected.

"It's important for us that Serbia and the RS mark the suffering of the Serbian people together, the tragedy that resulted with the largest ethnic cleansing since the Second World War," Vucic stressed.
