Violations of basic freedoms in Serbia

August 25 – September 7, 2023

The previous period was marked by various examples of violations of basic human rights in Serbia.

The conservative movement “Naši” once again threw leaflets in the courtyard of the N1 television and in the premises of the daily newspaper Danas, and at the birthday celebration of the tabloid Informer, the father of Predrag Koluvija wore a T-shirt with the logos of the media N1, Danas, NIN and Vreme crossed out.

Before the start of the protest against violence in Gornji Milanovac, a man drove his car into the gathered citizens and injured a six-year-old child. Fortunately, the child suffered minor injuries, and the male suspect was taken into custody.

In Futog, the police prevented members of the “Bravo” movement from approaching the mayor of Novi Sad, and in Belgrade, student Dimitrije Dimić was detained, who recently went on hunger strike as a sign of solidarity with the protests against violence that have been taking place throughout Serbia since May.

An activist from North Mitrovica, Momčilo Trajković was detained without explanation by the Serbian police at the Merdare administrative crossing on two occasions.
