SERBIA AND REMEMBRANCE DAY OF THE SREBRENICA GENOCIDE

July 30, 2009

According to the Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights in Serbia (YUCOM), “Following a range of actions and pressure by NGOs on Serbian authorities for the adoption of a Declaration on Srebrenica in the People’s Assembly and to proclaim July 11 a Day of Remembrance of the Srebrenica genocide, there has been no official response by the authorities.”

The only response came from Serbian politicians who used the same old empty phrase that “all those who committed crime, without any difference, should be held responsible,” thus far advocating “equalization and creation of a symmetry between the Srebrenica genocide and the Serb victims during the Bosnian war.”

As YUCOM report concluded,
“The factitious [fabricated] symmetry with the Serb victims in Bratunac, which is supposed to annul or relativize the horror and magnitude of the Srebrenica crime — when in only 5 days around 8,000 Bosniaks were killed in a planned action — will continue to acquire new forms and dimensions, to end in a brutal moral inversion: in fact, it was the Serbs who were ethnically cleansed from Srebrenica under pressure, threats and blackmails by the Bosniaks. Such falsified picture will not be of any help for Serbia in the process of democratization, nor in the process of joining the European Union.”
