bne IntelliNews – Protesters attack Montenegrin Prime Minister Krivokapic’s car

Protesters attacked Montenegrin Prime Minister Zdravko Krivokapic’s car on the Niksic-Podgorica motorway on April 8, he wrote on Twitter.

Dozens of people traveling to the capital, Podgorica to join a protest against the government, pushed the prime minister’s car in which his daughter was traveling.

“Today an official vehicle was attacked in which my daughter, who is a protected person, was traveling. As a father, I will never forget her tears and her fear. As Prime Minister, I will not allow you ferocity and lawlessness! Law and order will exist in the country that you are not used to. You will see that soon, ”wrote Krivokapic.

A video of the incident posted on YouTube shows a group of people, some of whom are carrying flags, around the car. Two climbed onto the hood but fell to the ground as the car accelerated. “Montenegrin patrios wanted to protect their country from the new pro-Serb government! A new government vehicle hits two old patriots. The man in the yellow jacket broke his hip,” says the caption.

Police said the attack has been documented and is being investigated. The protesters were stopped by police near the village of Bogetici. According to Tanja Knezevic-Perisic, the chairman of the Patriotic Revolutionary Union of Montenegro, which officially organized the protest, they will bring charges against the police who stopped them and the minister who gave the order.

The protesters tore up posters from two political parties in the ruling coalition, URA and Democratic Montenegro, reported the public broadcaster RTCG.

Meanwhile, Krivokapic accused President Milo Djukanovic, who is also chairman of the opposition Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS), of being behind protests organized against the government’s plan to launch a program to grant foreigners citizenship in exchange for investment abolish.

“I urge President Djukanovic not to destabilize the country and call on the people he has brought to the streets to return home,” wrote Krivokapic.

“The unrest it creates will not stop the hand of justice and the rule of law! Both the prosecution laws and the decision to change the criteria for acquiring citizenship are made in the interests of the state of Montenegro and its citizens, and no gatherings organized by the DPS will prevent this, ”he said.

Krivokapic also urged people not to respond to provocations.

Djukanovic replied that Krivokapic’s claims were “immoral”.

“It is extremely immoral for Prime Minister Krivokapic to assume that I am organizing protests that he does not like. Attempts to cover up all their ignorance, lack of commitment and inconsistency by blaming the previous government for everything are in vain, ”he wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, a few hundred people gathered in front of the government building to protest the passing of the law, but the protest ended within a few hours, the daily Vijesti reported.
