belgrade - The 18 meter high Christmas tree with which the municipality of Belgrade adorned the center of the city, has not fallen in favor with many Serbs. The artificial tree cost the community 83,000 euros and that leads to ridicule and anger.
A local newspaper called the tree 'just the tip of the great iceberg of corruption and a textbook example of how money is stolen from the state treasury. '
The 'most expensive Christmas tree in the world' was put down three days before the public tender ended, which feeds the discontent. The public makes clear his dissatisfaction with the expensive decoration through notes at the foot of the tree. 'Wish for 2018: that the scammers are in prison and not in parliament. '
