Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said he decided to remove the secrecy mark from the documents concerning wiretaps, in accordance with the law, and that he did so only from the documents concerning him.

„I did it in accordance with the law, and I don’t want to justify my self to anyone,“ Vucic said. „Even if it wasn’t for the law, I’d have done that anyway.“

He said that opposition is attacking him for showing secret documents „on television“ because they were afraid he could also remove the secrecy label from papers concerning them.

“They’re attacking me because they’re afraid of what I could say about them, publically. I never did that – neither directly, nor secretly notifying the press – never. I only did this for the documents concerning me so I could prove just what kind of liars they are,” Vucic noted.

He added he was surprised that after showing those documents, nobody asked how was it possible that secret services were wiretapping him, but that everyone was talking about the fact that he had shown those documents.
