Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic, said he knew he had been wiretapped, adding that President was a direct coup d'etat attempt.

„Competent authorities will determine whether they (the locals, as he said, who wiretapped him) are connected with foreigners“, Vucic said.

Speaking to the pro-regime Pink TV, he added that „there is only one target – Aleksandar Vucic and all those who dare to publicly support him.“
He added that such campaign had been going on since 2014, his family too, trying to compare it with late Slobodan Milosevic’s family.

„Everything here is based on absolute lies – they started with stories that my brother is the owner of the Frans’ restaurant,’ that he owns a hectare of land in Vojvodina, and then they started with the older son, Vucic recalled.

He added suffered for „what I did to Danilo and Milica. What I do in politics makes them a target…“
„Then we came to ‘Jovanjica’ (the largest marijuana plant in Europe, whose owner and his associates are said to be linked to the state institutions, are on trial)… Certain sources immediately said, trying to divert attention from their responsibility – ‘hey, he (the main suspect Predrag Koluvija) was linked to Andrej (Vucic’s brother)’.
The President said that „they are trying to make heroes out of the police for two days, and we will see them on a real polygraph and with real polygraph questions.“
On other issues, Vucic said Serbia’s job was „to help Croatia, everyone in the neighbourhood, but will they greet us if we help our people in Republika Srpska or Montenegro.“
