84 NGOs and over 100 signatories of the initiative and additional arguments – new letter to the PM urging sponsorship of the Resolution on Srebrenica

The initiative for Montenegro to sponsor a UN Resolution on memorializing the genocide in Srebrenica has been supported by 84 NGOs and over 100 prominent citizens, including numerous public figures who have actively contributed to the public interest in Montenegro for decades. Montenegrin non-governmental organizations have never before united in such numbers to support an initiative.

This morning, the NGOs that initially supported the initiative sent a new letter to the Prime Minister, Milojko Spajić, with additional arguments compelling Montenegro to sponsor the UN Resolution on the genocide in Srebrenica.

We demand that the agenda of session of the Government for tomorrow include the issue of Montenegro’s sponsorship of this UN resolution.

We expect the Government to decide to sponsor the resolution, primarily for moral reasons and as an expression of due regret for the fact that over 8,300 civilians, including 600 children, were shot in Srebrenica over several days in July 1995, during which time Montenegro, in alliance with Serbia, was assisting the Army of Republika Srpska whose members perpetrated that genocide.
