President of the opposition Serbian Republican Party, Nikola Sandulovic, was brutally beaten by members of the secret services after he was detained for questioning, his relatives and lawyer say.

Sandulovic was arrested at his home on January 3 by agents from the Security and Information Agency (BIA) after apologizing for crimes Serbia committed against ethnic Albanians during the Kosovan war of independence in 1998-99.

According to reports posted on social media, there was no news of Sandulovic until he was found in intensive care at the VMA military hospital in Belgrade on January 4.

The head of the government of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, reacted after the brutally violence on Serbian opposition politician Nikola Sandulovic.

“Deeply concerned about reports that Serbian opposition leader Nikola Sandulović has been paralyzed due to severe beatings by the Serbian secret service. This follows his apology for the crimes committed by Serbia during the genocidal campaign in Kosovo”, Kurti wrote in X.

Kurti says that the attack on Sandulovic is similar to the attacks made on political opponents by the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin.

“This unspeakable brutality represents the bill the Serbian government puts on its citizens for the courage to accept the truth and pursue reconciliation. It also constitutes a serious violation of the European Convention on Human Rights, an attack similar to Putin’s on those who refuse to participate in genocide denial,” Kurti wrote.
