Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that after the attacks on May 3 and 5 in the country, 3,000 illegal weapons and tens of thousands of bullets were handed over to the authorities.
Speaking to Pink TV, Vucic said that although the voluntary surrender of illegal weapons angered many, it was an important development for Serbia.
Recalling that licensed weapons will also be checked, the Serbian leader said, “We have increased the number of policemen in schools. We are getting positive feedback from both parents and teachers. Teachers’ powers have been expanded, and students can no longer pull out their chairs and bully.” He said.
Vucic, who said that opposition supporters, who staged a demonstration after the attacks, “wanted his head”, called on citizens to attend the largest demonstration in Serbia on May 26.
In Frakar, near Belgrade, on May 3, 9 people, including 8 children, were killed in an armed attack by Kosta Kecmanović, a 14-year-old 7th grade student, at Vladislav Ribnekar Primary School.
While a teacher and 6 students were injured in the attack on the school, it was reported that the perpetrator of the incident, Kecmanović, planned the attack in advance and prepared a list of the names of the victims.
Two days after the attack on the school, 21-year-old Uros Blazic in Mladenvac fired indiscriminately from the moving car with an automatic rifle, killing 8 people.
The government declared national mourning after the shooting.
