Rodoljub Sabic, Trustee for information

It seems that the turmoil initiated by the public criticism directed by the Trustee for information against Article 45 of the Bill on Protection of Public Information and which continued in the Parliament over the amendment submitted by the Ombudsman taking the side of the trustee, will be finalized by a "compromise". It would be indisputably good if it was not of the nature most common among us - that is a rotten compromise. Certainly, it is very good that the Government quitted the solution which gave the repressive bodies free hands to do without any risqué the data processing, and to dispose of any trial of the Trustee to intervene with the mere invention of security reasons, and that for the whole matter at least the opinion of another body is necessary now - the opinion of the President of the Supreme court.

These outcomes are not bad, unless they are of those, so-called, rotten compromises. In this very case everything is leading to the conclusion that it is truly one of those.

Personal attitude

The CD with the video which should have served as the evidence in the process against the “road mafia” has recently disappeared from the documentation of the Special Court.

Nevertheless, I can say that the Ministry did not invoke any of the reasons referred to in Articles 9-14 of the Law in the letter sent to you, and the arguments presented in the letter are irrelevant in this context, Mr. Sabic said.
