JOINT CONDEMNATION OF MEKTIC’S STATEMENT ON SREBRENICA

 

BANJALUKA, February 13 /SRNA/ - The Executive Board of the Republika Srpska Organization of Families of Captured and Killed Soldiers and Missing Civilians supports the position of all municipal organizations which condemned the statement from BiH Security Minister Dragan Mektic that the Serbs should “recognize genocide in Srebrenica.”

 

The president of the Assembly of the Republika Srpska Organization of Families of Captured and Killed Soldiers and Missing Civilians, Radojka Filipovic, told reporters after a meeting of the Executive Board in Banjaluka that Mektic’s statement is arbitrary and personal.

“This is not the position of Republika Srpska, and a representative of Serbs in the BiH Council of Ministries and someone who is heading a Ministry must not give such statements,” Filipovic has said.

She has said that the starting point is the fact that a horrific crime was committed in Srebrenica, but also the fact that a horrific crime was committed against Serbs in 1992 and at the beginning of 1993 in Srebrenica, Bratunac, Zvornik, Milici, Vlasenica and Sekovici where more than 3,000 Serbs were killed and that no one has been called to account for this crime.

“If a crime was committed in Srebrenica, it was committed only because we defended ourselves from crimes,” Filipovic has said.

The president of the Republika Srpska Committee for the Search for Captured and Killed Soldiers and Missing Civilians, Marko Grabovac, has told reporters that he was appalled by this statement from Mektic.

“Such a statement is not becoming of Mektic, the man who should be more interested in Serbian victims and check evidence about the sufferings of the Serbian people which we submitted to the Prosecutor’s Office of BiH, for which crimes no one has yet been brought to justice,” Grabovac has said.

Mektic earlier told the Vecernji List daily, edition for BiH, that “the Serbs must pass catharsis and recognize genocide in Srebrenica.” /end/sg
