Serbia: Religious Minorities Concerned over Dangers, Lack of Protection

JAGODINA – A perceived lack of protection for Serbia’s religious minorities has prompted Zivota Milanovic, a Hare Krishna from Jagodina, to file a case with the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, Forum 18 reported on February 7. Milanovic has been the victim of repeated knife attacks from 2001 to 2007, and though attacks with more than three stabbings are usually treated as attempted murder, local police and prosecutors have not shown any interest in the case, nor have they taken any steps to protect him. Milanovic is the sole Hare Krishna devotee in the area.
