According to Novosti.rs, the Serbian BIA has claimed that a Croatian diplomat tried to establish a network of agents in Belgrade. The diplomat allegedly reached out to individuals in politics, business, and the media. The ministry of foreign affairs of Serbia declared Hrvoj Šnajder, the first secretary at the embassy of Croatia in Belgrade, persona non grata after uncovering evidence of espionage and recruitment to work for the Croatian service.
In response to this situation, Minister Gordan Grlić-Radman expressed surprise and needed to understand the details. Meanwhile, Hidajet Biščević, ambassador of Croatia in Serbia refrained from commenting on the case stating its sensitivity and that even if he knew what happened he couldn’t go into details because it was outside his scope. The allegations have not been confirmed by any other sources yet.
