The Serbian Movement Dveri on Jan. 12 said that the First Basic Court in Belgrade had handed down a first instance decision, ordering the Serbian president and the Serbian Progressive Party leader, Aleksandra Vucic, to pay RSD200,000 to Dveri leader Bosko Obradovic for the infringement of his honor and reputation by calling Obradovic “a thief” and “a fascist.”  


According to a statement from Dveri, Obradovic has sued Vucic for calling him “a thief” and “a fascist” during broadcasts on TV Pink, on Feb. 13 and Feb. 16, 2019.

In the explanation, the judge, according to Dveri, said that with his statements, Vucic had humiliated Obradovic and infringed his dignity, reputation and honor considering he had made the remarks in the capacity of the Serbian president and on a TV station with national frequency, which bore additional weight.  


Obradovic said that “this is a big day and a historical moment when the independent judiciary handed down its first ruling finding Aleksandar Vucic guilty, not only as an individual, but also as the symbol of the incumbent government.”
