The embassy has issued a statement saying that Davidović was issued the visa under standard procedures, in the absence of any information from the Serbian authorities.

It is stated that the Nacionalni Stroj (tr. National Formation) leader addressed the embassy’s consular section last August, seeking a family visitor visa on the valid grounds that his wife, Aleksandra Bikić, had permanent residency in Italy and possessed a valid residency permit.

“That day Mr. Davidović submitted his passport, which had been issued on September 17, 2002, and which was valid until September 17, 2012,“ reads the statement.

“In the absence of any information from the Serbian authorities... a visa was issued to him on the authorization of the police authorities in Trieste on August 5, 2008, valid for 365 days, under standard procedure,“ the statement adds.

The Nacionalni Stroj leader received a summons last week to report to Sombor prison to serve a one-year sentence issued by the Novi Sad District Court and upheld by the Supreme Court.

Davidović was found guilty of inciting racial, religious and national hatred.

He says that he has no intention of responding to the summons and that he is “in exile“ in Italy, writing a new book.
