Member of the Serbian Parliament, Marinika Tepic said Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic had fallen into a trap when it came to explaining his ties with two Palestinian politicians, Mohammed Dahlan and Adham Abo Madalal.
Tepic said at a press conference in the Serbian Parliament that Vucic had “pushed” SNS official Marija Obradovic into saying that the statements about Dahlan and Madalal were “science fiction”.
To remind, Tepic, deputy leader of the Party of Freedom and Justice (SSP), told reporters that former Palestinian secret police chief Mohamed Dahlan and the first Palestinian Ambassador in Montenegro Adham Abu Madalala were involved in “personal combinations of top officials of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS)” in exporting arms to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

She said Dahlan is wanted by Interpol and that he currently resided in Belgrade. She also said that Madalala was the key figure the export of arms from Serbia. She produced photographs of Dahlan in the presence of Vucic and Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic.
“We have been wondering for years how Saudi Arabia and the UAE became Vucic’s best partners … and it was only Obradovic’s arrest that drew attention to personal combinations by Vucic (Serbian Internal Affairs Minister) Nebojsa Stefanovic and his father Branko,” Tepic said.
Furthermore, she pointed out that Dahlan and Tony Blair had become collaborators of Aleksandar Vucic at about the same time and asked if Blair’s consulting services were paid for by the United Arab Emirates.
Tepic also claims that, in 2013, as then Minister of Defence, Aleksandar Vucic negotiated Serbia’s arms trade contract with Libya and that a fictitious Cyprus-based company, owned by Slobodan Tesic and blacklisted by the United Nations, participated in the trade.
When asked why she said that Dahlan was on Interpol’s arrest warrant when there was no evidence of it, she made it clear that only the persons on Interpol’s so-called red wanted list can be revealed to the public, whereas Dahlan was not on that particular list.
