Criminal extra-trial Chamber of the Special Department of the High Court in Belgrade rejected the appeal of the defense attorneys of the former State Secretary in the Ministry of the Interior, Dijana Hrkalovi.
Her defense attorneys appealed for the pre-trial judge's decision to be changed and for her detention to be lifted, so that she could be released pending trial.
The mayor of the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad, Milos Vucevic, a senior official in Serbia's ruling Serbian Progressive Party, SNS, will file an as yet unnamed criminal charge on Tuesday against President Aleksandar Vucic, the party announced on Monday - with a view to clearing the President's reputation and exposing the "mafia octopus" that the mayor says has Vucic in its sights.
More than 322 pages of evidence and other charges have been sent to court for confirmation.
It should be recalled that they are currently accused of five murders, illegal possession and distribution of narcotics and weapons, kidnapping and rape.
The indictment covers 31 defendants, including witnesses - defendants.
"It is time to remind ourselves again that the accused can defend themselves in all possible ways, including lying. That is how the system works. Everywhere," journalist Dusan Masic wrote.
Some portals published the alleged testimony of Veljko Belivuk, from the hearing, in which he spoke about his alleged relationship with the President of Serbia.
