According to Serbian State TV, Spasojevic's term expired several months ago, but he has been allowed to remain at the post until the end of June as he has requested, citing family obligations.
Tanjug informs the diplomat has commented on the unrest in Turkey for the media on several occasions, despite warnings he was breaching the law.
