Extreme right parties have filed criminal complaints against journalists Ana Lalic and Dinko Gruhonjic of Novi Sad alleging hate speech, the European Center for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) said in a press release.

Following the death threats and persecution that Lalic and Gruhonjic have been exposed to for months, criminal complaints were filed by representatives of the Oathkeepers party, whose leader Milica Djurdjevic Stamenkovski is Serbia’s Minister for Family Care and Demography.

Due to the death threats, the Media Freedom Rapid Response assigned extraordinary security measures to Lalic and Gruhonjic, said the ECPMF in a press release.

It added that that the Dveri movement, the People’s Party and the I Live for Serbia movement have also announced criminal complaints against Gruhonjic.
