Their Excellencies, Ambassadors and Observers of International Organizations in Montenegro
To the heads of religious communities
To the President of the Assembly
To the Prime Minister
We invite You to influence and cancel the announced debate on amendments of the Law of religion freedom. _______________________________________________________________________
Minister of Justice, Human and Minorities Rights, Mr Leposavic illegally conducted a procedure for an initiative to amend the law on religion freedom because he did not invite on consultations representatives of the Montenegrin Orthodox Church, which is registered as a religious community.
Also, the legal representative of the Metrpolitanate of Montenegro littoral Serbian orthodox church (SOC), now holds the position of Minister of Justice, Human and Minority Rights, which is a conflict of interest. He worked directly in the name and on behalf of the Metropolitanate of Montenegro Littoral SOC, to the detriment of the public interest and the constitutional and legal order of Montenegro. (With this occasion we file a lawsuit with KAS).
With his actions, Minister Leposavic ignores both, ethical and ethnic Montenegrins.
Despite the arrogance of the newly formed government, Montenegrins have not reacted. However, Montenegro International can convey to You the knowledge of its members who are on the site, that the tension and outcry among Montenegrin citizens is growing and that we are facing very uncertain days.
We invite the Government, if they consider that the Law is discriminatory, to initiate the Constitutional Court of Montenegro.
We invite the Government and the Assembly not to demonstrate force, especially not the Greater Serbia force, because the language of force was never recognized by Montenegrins.
We invite both the Government and the Assembly to remove the amendment to the Law on Freedom of Religion from the agenda, because, according the knowledge we have, a new epidemiological bomb is waiting for us.
Ladies and gentlemen,
Montenegrins are part of civic Montenegro and have always been part of the solution, willing to have a dialogue and find a compromise. When they are excluded from the conversation, Montenegrins will have no choice but to become a problem. They will not allow Montenegro to become a Serbian state due to the implementation of the Greater Serbia aggression policies.
If the present government does not want Montenegrins at the table, they will have them on the streets.
Montenegro is our only party.
