The Committee for Protection of Serbs’ Rights in the Federation of BiH /FBiH/ and all Serb associations in that entity state they are for resolving the issue of accommodating illegal migrants but outside the Serb villages, Committee Chairman, Đorđe Radanović, told SRNA.
Ahead of Thursday’s session of the Council of Ministers in caretaking capacity about the migration in BiH-related situation concerning the increased influx of migrants, Radanović stresses that Serbs are opposing any plans to accommodate migrants on Serb soil and in settlements, where the Serb people was majority before 1991.
“They can forget that any migrant centre may be constructed there. Where the Serb village used to be, even though no a single Serb has yet returned there, illegal migrants cannot be accommodated because they block the return of the Serb population,” Radanović said.
Radanović says Serbs in the FBiH live in worse conditions than migrants because they are often without electricity and water.
“In the FBiH, migrants regularly have breakfast, lunch, dinner, accommodation, electricity, water, while the Serbs living in the villages located in the municipalities of Bosanski Petrovac, Drvar, Grahovo, Glamoč, etc. can only dream especially about electricity and water,” he said.
The Council of Ministers in caretaking capacity should review on Thursday the materials of the Ministry of Security on the migration in BiH-related situation concerning the increased influx of migrants.
According to the session agenda, information with a comprehensive plan of measures and activities for the efficient management of the migrant crisis in BiH, as well as information on the migration in BiH-related situation concerning the increased influx of migrants to BiH are to be reviewed within this item at the session.
