    Dear foreros,

    what does the expression "ništa vidio, ništa čuo" mean? I have two possible answers:

    - "daleko od očiju, daleko od srca" (if someone doesn't know a fact, never mind, he/she shall not suffer/get angry/react/etc.)
    - the person who speaks doesn't want to now anything about a problem (ain't seen nothing, ain't heard nothing, don't bother me)

    Hvala unapred.

    Or the three wise monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
    (or b. the wisdom - "pravi se blesav" very popular here...)
