Opponents Targets of Assault Again
Belgrade, May 17, 2006
The Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Serbia
reiterates its deep concern with the fact that the people holding views
different from the predominant mainstream are more and more frequent
targets of assault in Serbia. The house of the outstanding author and
expert in religious matters, Mirko Djordjevic, was stoned only a day
after he guested a TV show during which he nothing but spoke out his
personal positions on the deeds of Nikolaj Velimirovic.
The Committee demands the police to pay special heed
to the investigation of this case, given that there are strong
indications of a serious, politically motivated threat. The state of
Serbia must make it clear to all ready for such showdowns with political
opponents that it will take decisive measures against them.
