Serbian PM Vucic sacks defence minister

Bratislav Gasic cannot remain Serbian defence minister, premier Aleksandar Vucic said on December 7. Gasic had offended “all women in Serbia,” Vucic said.

“I like female journalists who get on their knees easily,” Gasic told journalists on Sunday, referring to B92 reporter Zlatija Labovic who crouched in front of him in order to avoid being in the way of cameras.

Vucic apologised to journalists and all women in Serbia in his own name and on behalf of the government. “We have to protect women in Serbia. This was a bad message to all women,” the PM said, commenting on the Gasic incident.
