Serbian Prime Minister-Designate Ana Brnabic said on Oct. 26 that certain media outlets in Serbia are out to “dehumanize” Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and members of his family, and present him as a criminal, in order to have him removed from power, even by force.
“We’re talking about the dehumanization and criminalization of Aleksandar Vucic and his family so that if something were to happen to him or his family tomorrow, the majority of citizens and international community would find nothing odd about it,” she told Pink TV.
Brnabic added that behind these actions are tycoons and people who want to return to power, as they are aware that it is Aleksandar Vucic, fully backed by the citizens, who stands between them and their desire to rule.
Brnabic added that the attacks are getting worse with each new day and that she fears for the president and wants to protect him as the situation is, by no means, benign.
She called Serbia a democratic country in which the media can, “for better or for worse,” publish whatever they want, adding that she will continue to speak about what is going on, as her task is to protect Vucic and keep Serbia safe.
