    Former State Secretary in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Dijana Hrkalović, used her guest appearance on the show “Ćirilica” on Happy Television to present a series of incorrect information about BIRN and weekly Vreme journalist Jelena Zorić and sent her threats mentioning her brother. “This Jelena Zorić, whose confession we finally got a few days ago, for whom Vlada Gajić from the People’s Party says that Saša Drecun is her source for her information. I mean, everyone is saying that she has a very close relationship with him. I hear her brother saying that she had a problem with the newsroom of the television where she previously worked because she covered up the correspondence between Drecun and a criminal, most likely Korac, which arrived at that newsroom’s email. Pay attention, she hid it from her editors! What is it called? Selective investigative journalism, or what?”
