Aleksandar Vulin, Serbia's Interior Minister, said on Thursday the evidence to the wiretapping of President Aleksandar Vucic were submitted to the prosecutors' office, including documents about the role of a former state secretary Dijana Hrkalovic in his Ministry in that.

„It’s done. We submitted all evidence to the prosecutors and her, and other Ministry’s officials’ role in the illegal wiretapping of the President and his family’s members is explained,“ Vulin said.

Commenting on the arrest for the former deputy head of the Ministry’s department for fighting organised crime Goran Papic, Vulin said he ordered the return of a vehicle the police confiscated from a suspected criminal before its examination.

He added Papic is suspected of trading in influence and that it was „unequivocally proven.“

Vulin announced new arrests but did not give any detail.
