The Serbian government adopted a draft law on the origin of assets whose introduction should send the message that Serbia is a different country that has the political will to implement rule of law, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said on Thursday.

“The law will be implemented equally for all. A special unit will be formed within the Tax Authority to investigate everyone, including the political elite. It will cover everyone who can’t explain where their property came from,” she told a news conference.  

She said the law will enter into parliamentary procedure under regular, not urgent, proceedings because the government feels that should no longer be done without good reason.
