Drasko Stanivukovic, PDP party MP in the Republika Srpska National Assembly (RSNA), has filed a criminal complaint against RS Interior Minister Dragan Lukac for the crime of endangering security and bodily harm.
“I presented it with evidence and with medical records and a doctor’s recommendation. It was bodily harm and endangering security, because he told me I would end up as flags, and they were broken, torn down and on the floor. It’s a serious threat to the MP,” said Stanivkovic in Banja Luka.
Stanivukovic said it was certainly a criminal responsibility. He pointed out that, as citizens, they managed to have Lukac speak for the first time about his possible resignation. Stanivukovic recalled that Lukac was the first to threaten him in the NSRS and invited him three times to approach him.
“He can be heard clearly when he told me ‘You want me to hit you again’,” Stanivukovic said. Protests are scheduled today at 6pm in Banja Luka, Klix.ba news portal reports.
On December 24th, Republika Srpska Interior Minister Dragan Lukac slapped NSRS Party MP Drasko Stanivukovic after an argument over NATO flags in the Assembly room. During a speech at the RS National Assembly, where a special session on the BiH Reform Program was being held, Lukac addressed Stanivukovic, who, with several other opposition members, brought small NATO flags to the Assembly hall.
The flags were put there in protest because Stanivukovic believes that by signing the Reform Program, which was sent to NATO headquarters, member of BiH’s Presidency Milorad Dodik annulled “the RS’s military neutrality.”
Still, Lukac had a different view of the flags. “While I was fighting over my head, NATO planes flew in. I was watching if bombs would pop over my head. You can’t bring those flags. You were small then, but you should know some things now, otherwise you will end up as flags, “Lukac said.
Afterwards, Stanivukovic approached Lukac, with the intention of explaining how he would end up, after which Lukac called him monkey and slapped him.
