Opposition Leader Says Attacks on Serb Minority Not Isolated Cases

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, August 24, 2019 – Commenting on recent attacks on members of the Serb minority, the president of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Davor Bernardić, said on Friday that these attacks were not isolated cases, adding that once the SDP returned to power, these attacks and violence would not be tolerated.

Asked to comment on SDP’s position on recent attacks on members of the Serb ethnic minority, the SDP chief said these attacks “are not isolated cases.”

“Unfortunately, this was only one (of a number of) attacks on Serbs in Croatia during the rule of the incumbent government, but this comes as no surprise to me, because we have a government that tolerates the use of the Ustasha salute “For the Homeland, Ready!”, Bernardić said.

On the other hand, “we have Serb representatives in Croatia who, instead of protecting Croatian Serbs, they are protecting the ruling Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), and sit in the same government with them,” Bernardić said.
