The Serbian authorities have always reacted promptly to attacks on journalists, a senior official of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) said on Monday.

SNS MP group chief Aleksandar Martinovic told reporters in parliament that the authorities would continue reacting to attacks on journalists but than spoke offensively about the head of a journalists’ organization, the Beta news agency said.  

Martinovic said that Nedim Sejdinovic, the president of the Independent Journalists’ society of Vojvodina (NDNV) who has been receiving threats and insults on Facebook, is an ignorant and uneducated man.  

Sejdinovic and Beta news agency editor in chief Dragan Janjic both received threats from the Facebook profile Our Serbia.
