Following the recent nationalist attacks by some radical Serbian monarchists and a failed attempt at discrediting the Croatian Royal Council (CRC), NGO, on various international internet groups and platforms within the social media. With the final aim of general rejection of the Croatian population from the idea of Croatian monarchism, discreditation of the House Habsburg-Lothringen and the rehabilitation and glorifying of the discredited Serbo-Yugoslavian House Karađorđević. After an unanimous vote, the new Decree on radical ideologies and movements, also popularly known as Lex Dule, was adopted. Its main aim is prohibiting any relationship with organizations that glorify radical totalitarian ideologies and movements from the 20th century.
Prior to making of the decision, an application was taken into account, to take uphold the state and circumstances surrounding the case of Mr Duje Jerković, who was discredit by some radical Serbian monarchists in their recent posts in various facebook groups. Mr Duje Jerković (not a member of the CRC), although a longtime member of international as well as domestic monarchist groups on social networks like facebook, in his personal naivety and the desire for co-operation and friendly relationships with some Serbian monarchists, and a personal wish for normalization of Croatian-Serbian relations. Has underwent nationalist manipulation by some Serbian monarchists and was thus, not by his full will, exploited and used as a means of nationalist propaganda by some radical Serbian monarchists in their efforts to discredit the Croatian Royal Council (CRC), the Croatian Royal House Habsburg-Lothringen and with the aim of total rehabilitation and glorification of the discredited Serbo-Yugoslavian House Karađorđević. After his personal refusal to serve these goals, his name was systematically discredited. After Mr Duje Jerkovic agreed to share his experiences and knowledge of the activities of these radical Serbian monarchists in connection with their unhonorable attempt to attack and discredit the CRC, we have taken into account his personal statement. On this occasion we fully pass his statement:
Appealed by such dishonorable conducts and the worrying rise of proponents of various twentieth-century totalitarian ideologies, members of the Croatian Royal Council (CRC) have voted unanimously on the adoption of the Decree on radical ideologies and movements, also known under its popular name as Lex Dule, which main aim is condemning and distancing from all organizations who promote or favor totalitarian ideologies, this aim to distance is in our millennial cultural and historic heritage.
