The man who was apprehended, Saturday, for carrying a mock gallows, symbolising the difficult situation of Serbia’s pensioners, was released from custody Sunday morning. According to Glas Sumadije daily, he spent the night in hospital, as he suffers from high blood pressure.

Kragujevac police apprehended a man, Saturday, for carrying a mock gallows during the protests. The gallows also had a sign saying: “A robbed Pensioner. (President Aleksandar) Vucic, give me back my money, or I’ll hang myself. Death to Fascism.” The dummy in the gallows carried a sign “I, the pensioner,” Glas Sumadije wrote.

According to other media, the man is a 66-year-old Kragujevac resident, Slobodan Stefanovic, known as a civic activist and a participant in the protests against the former Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic.

The minor who was apprehended earlier for carrying the mock gallows during Belgrade protests was also released from custody last Saturday
