The Vice-President of the Party of Freedom and Justice, Marinika Tepic accused the Serbian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ivica Dacic of taking money from businessmen and arms dealers and using it for withdrawals of Kosovo’s recognition. Tepic also questioned whether Dacic had abused his official duties, Belgrade-based Beta news agency reported.

„Did Dacic abuse his official duties by raising money from reputable businessmen and arms dealers and using it to annul the recognition of Kosovo? Did Dacic take more than a million euros in cash from Slobodan Tesic for the same thing? And was Dacic’s cabinet chief, Nikola Nedeljkovic present in some situations when the money was being collected,“ Tepic said at a press conference today.

The adviser to the outgoing Kosovo Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jetlir Zyberaj shared the front page of the Belgrade-based tabloid Kurir on his Facebook profile, claiming that this newspaper is reporting about something the officials from his ministry had „been saying for a long time“, that is, that „Serbian officials are using worldwide arms sales against Kosovo.“ Kurir’s article in question, however, makes no mention of Kosovo.

Tepic underlined that money was collected from businessmen and arms dealers during the entire operation to withdraw Kosovo’s recognition. The Vice-President of the Party of Freedom and Justice also said that the property of Nikola Nedeljkovic and related persons should be investigated by the police and the prosecution.

She claimed that Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic must have been aware of this and urged him to answer her questions „at the speed of lightning.“

„I hope Dacic will think carefully before attempting to deny this, because when he recently tried to deny the information he had been warned about by the US, the embassy reacted and denied his claims and confirmed what I said,“ Tepic said.

Speaking about the Krusik affair, Tepic reiterated that President Aleksandar Vucic and „his associates“ were to blame for the collapse of this factory.
