NGOs against the ban of protest at the boulevard in front of the Parliament and for the protection of constitutional right to peaceful assembly

Institute Alternative (IA), Centre for Civic Education (CGO), Centre for Development of NGOs (CDNGO) and Network for the affirmation of NGO sector (NANS) urge the Ministry of Interior not to persist in its intention to ban the organisation of public assemblies on roads through the amendments of law, because it is contrary to Montenegrin Constitution and international standards.

Even though Ministry of Interior justifies these amendments by referring to the verdict of European Court of Human Rights, case of Kudrevičius and Others v. Lithuania, we warn the Ministry of Interior and public that this verdict does not justify the introduction of ban at the road in front of the Parliament of Montenegro. »
