Serb Opposition Politician Rails Against Endemic Corruption

The Serb Progressive Party (SNS) Leader Tomislav Nicolić (pictured here) held a conference on Thursday in Belgrade dedicated to fighting corruption, with Mr. Nicolić saying that Serbia needs a general anti-corruption strategy that is based on reforming institutions, changing legislation, and increasing the partnership between the state and civil society.

Mr. Nicolić went on to call Serbia a cleptocracy because everybody is working together. Later on he said that it should be SNS’ priority to lead the fight against corruption, as this would be the way that Serbia would begin to accept European values and fight against the damage that corruption does to the economic and social life of the country.
