PRO-GOVERNMENT STUDENT MOVEMENT DEFENDS UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT
Member of the pro-government student movement (NSP) leadership, Ljudevit Boricic, said on Feb. 24 that there was no reason for the Belgrade University students to continue their protest. Boricic said that university president Dragutin Velickovic, whose resignation is requested by the students, won the vote of confidence at the Belgrade University Council session and that, "he could be dismissed only by those who had appointed him to this post." The NSP leadership accused the student protest leaders of being "foreign hirelings," and claimed that NSP was "not involved" in politics.
