They were arrested for the crime of inciting a violent change in the constitutional order, Nogo's lawyer Marko Pusica told Tanjug.

Police are also expected to search the apartment during the afternoon, and Pusica believes that his client Nogo was arrested, because he announced the use of a paintball rifle in front of the parliament.

Nogo's parliamentary immunity was terminated today, since the mandate of the MPs in the new convocation was confirmed.

Nogo was arrested more than three weeks ago as a leader of protest in front of the Serbian Parliament, when he did not invoke immunity, but the court also refused to order his detention.

Nogo and Radojicic will be questioned in the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office within 48 hours, after which it will be known whether the prosecutor will ask for their further detention.
