Two Serbian students turned themselves in to the police after breaking windows on the offices of a local branch of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS).
Students Srdjan Djuric and Mladen Cvijetic broke the windows on the offices of the local SNS branch Novi Sad on the night of Wednesday-Thursday to express dissatisfaction with the overall situation in Serbian society. “What we wanted to do is a more radical reaction which 70-80 percent of people would not have done. We feel that this was the right thing to do even though I don’t advocate or like violence,” the two students said.
They added that they turned themselves in to show that they are not violence-prone but are ordinary citizens who expressed their outrage.
Earlier, the SNS Novi Sad branch said that the windows on its offices in the Nova Detelinara neighborhood had been broken.
The police issued a statement saying that two persons were taken before a misdemeanor judge.
