Miloševic's propaganda chief has found respectibility as a minister.
Appeared in print on 29.07.2010
Just back from Brussels, where he has been conferring with Cecilia Malmström, the European commissioner for home affairs, Ivica Dacic, Serbia’s minister of the interior, sinks back into his easy chair and looks more than relaxed. He pours out data about the numbers of new biometric passports his ministry has recently issued and spouts chapter and verse about the tonnes of drugs his policemen have just seized. He talks about his February visit to the US, where he was an honoured guest of the FBI and the CIA, and about last month’s trip to Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. You need to do a double-take. After all, Dacic was a leading light of the Miloševic regime that led the Serbs so catastrophically to war in the 1990s.
