In her speech outlining the key points of her strategy, Veronica Dragalin underlined the following: “…It is very important that the media and entire society analyzed independently as much information as possible and get persuaded that our cases have been filed in the right way, that the stance of the prosecuting side is motivated, that discrimination on political grounds or whatsoever is not in our arsenal.”
