Report from the “Day After – active aid and support to citizens endangered by the floods” conference
“We are aware that Serbia will, like other countries in the region, face disasters and emergency situations which will prompt us to remember all the legal and other questions which rose during the floods,” says Milan Antonijevic, YUCOM Director.
The announcement of PM Aleksandar Vucic that he is willing to pay homage to the victims in Srebrenica is perceived in the region as a gesture towards reconciliation.
The NGO sector says that his statement has great weight on the road towards establishing good relations with neighboring countries, but also adds that the crime in Srebreica is something that must constantly be discussed, not just on the eve of the anniversary of the July 11th massacre.
BELGRADE – Milan Antonijevic, Director of the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights, remarked today that the willingness of the PM Aleksandar Vucic to go to Srebrenica is a positive message that can contribute to reconciliation in the region.
False allegations against the Serbian war crimes prosecution and the enforced retirement of the prosecutor suggest that powerful people are still trying to hide the truth about the 1990s conflicts.

We need to acknowledge what we have done about the 1990s, when similar news was coming out of our country, when just like today innocent people were targeted because of religion, hatred, warmongering propaganda and someone else’s interests.
