A former MP and founding member of the conservative Dveri movement was arrested for threating Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Belgrade media reported on Thursday.
The Telegraf tabloid said that Srdjan Nogo was arrested under a warrant issued by the Special Prosecutor’s Office for High-Tech Crime. It added that he was ordered into police custody for 48 hours.
The warrant said that he was suspected of threatening the president. Nogo said in a Twitter post that Vucic and his close associate Vladimir Djukanovic should shout Long Live Serbia before a firing squad.
Nogo was expelled from Dveri in 2019. He is said by the media to have extreme right views. He was arrested in August 2020 and charged with inciting sedition. Nogo is known to have spoken in public in support of convicted war criminal Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladic and against the 2013 Brussels Agreement on Kosovo. He supported the boycott of the 2020 parliamentary elections and was one of the leaders of the ensuing protests during which he was arrested. He was also arrested for breaking a ballot box at those elections.
