Centre for Civic Education (CCE) today presented a report “Three years of violations of the Constitution: who is responsible?” at the press conference.
Within the sub-programme Equal Opportunities, the CCE has almost two years ago filed to the Constitutional Court of Montenegro an Initiative to review the constitutionality of certain provisions of the Law on misdemeanor assessing that these violated constitutional rights of citizens of Montenegro. The Constitutional Court up to this day has not made a decision, which placed thousands of our citizens in a position of inequality before the law and left uncontrolled mechanism of abuse to the governing structures.
The report is the result of the need to find answers to the following questions:
What is happening with the Initiative? What does the Constitution prescribe, and what is the Montenegrin practice? How many citizens of Montenegro were unconstitutionally sent to jail? Why does the Montenegrin government deliberately prologue violation of the Constitution, and how much it earns in this way? What are the chances of Montenegrin citizens which appeal? Who is responsible for the current situation where the rights of citizens of Montenegro are systematically violated? What needs to be done in the shortest possible time?
Report with complete data was presented by Snežana KALUĐEROVIĆ, programme coordinator at the CCE and Mira POPOVIĆ, programme assistant.
