RTCG, without basis, closed doors to the public and the Parliament of Montenegro

By the decision of the RTCG Council on the suspension of live TV broadcasts of the sessions of the Parliament until the day of the election, the RTCG dismissed the possibility of objective and timely information about some of the key issues on the agenda of the Parliament of Montenegro. This decision of the current management is another confirmation of RTCG’s closedness to the pluralism of opinion, as indicated by numerous relevant domestic and international reports.

Today, the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) sent a letter to the President of the RTCG Council, Ivan Jovetić, with the question: according to which legal provisions and regulations did the RTCG Council decide to stop broadcasting sessions of the Parliament of Montenegro when the electoral lists have not been confirmed yet? »

Political will, social catharsis and education needed to deal with the 90s

A fair review of the past, fact-finding, individualization of responsibilities and justice delivery regarding the wars of the 90s represent prerequisites for good regional relations and shaping civil and multi-ethnic Montenegro, as concluded at the conference “Transitional Justice and Remembrance Culture of the 90s – between responsibility and undesirable heritage”, organized by the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) with the support of the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights of Montenegro.

UoM to publish required information on financial operations instead of “packed nothing”

Unsigned reaction of the University of Montenegro (UoM) represents another “packed nothing” and does not deny the indisputable facts to which the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) pointed out by presenting the analysis “Financial alchemy of UoM – insight into the financing of UoM from 2015 to 2019″. However, for the sake of the public, we will explain what the UoM is trying to do with this clumsy replacement of theses.

Firstly, the CCE does not claim that UoM has not formally acted in accordance with the Free Acees to Information Law in the part of the response to the requested information. However, we responsibly claim that the UoM’s management essentially blocked access to these information, allowing only insight, as the have the documention in electronic format or could have make copies and we would pay the appropriate costs. Permission to just take a look at the hundreds of papers that require serious analysis makes pointless access to these information. Namely, that type of access to information is performed only in the case of establishing the fact that the requested information really exists, while in the case of analysis of the information, it must, when already approved, be submitted in the format required by the request. »
