Members of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, on the order of the Higher Public Prosecutor’s Office, filed two criminal charges and issued a measure banning entry into Serbia for eight persons who, during the Europride 2022 event, “insulted public morals” with their behavior, according to the Ministry of Interior’s announcement.
Members of the Criminal Police Directorate, in consultation with the competent prosecutor’s office, identified two persons, citizens of Turkey and Italy, against whom, due to the suspicion that they committed the crime of inciting national, racial and religious hatred and intolerance during Europride 2022, a criminal complaint was filed.
A search has been launched for these two persons, given that they are unavailable to the Serbian investigative authorities.
Also, in consultation with the Higher Public Prosecutor’s Office for high-tech crime, all measures will be taken with the aim of further dealing with persons who shared posts with extremist content addressed to members of the LGBT community through the social networks Instagram and Twitter.
The police will file two criminal charges against those persons due to the suspicion that they have committed the criminal offense of endangering security.
Police officers are continuing further work on establishing the identity and possible denial of entry to other participants of the Europride 2022 event, as well as on establishing the identity of the sender of threats to the Europride 2022 Info Center that were sent via e-mail addresses before the event.
