This morning the warning signs were set up to inform the citizens that a part of Vracar, the corner of Njegoseva and Aleksa Nenadovića is a part of the city where there is no rule of law but rule of hooligans.
The reactions of the Republic of Serbia’s authorities and media machinery to the Ratko Mladić judgment and IRMCT Report to the UN Security Council represent a shameful attempt to avoid responsibility, inflame nationalist hysteria and deepen the distrust between the citizens of Serbia and the rest of the world.
On Monday, March 11, the hallway leading to the Youth Initiative for Human Rights office was marked with the graffiti messages “Ratko Mladić” and “No divisions”, while the office doors were covered in spray-paint and stickers with photographs of 8 prominent women in Serbian history and the writing “A source of pride and a true Serbian woman, you are unworthy of her shadow”.
Today, Youth Initiative for Human Rights’ activists have painted over the graffiti with the image of Ratko Mladić, former Chief of the General Staff of the Army of Republic of Srpska, convicted in the first instance to life imprisonment for war crimes throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina and for genocide in Srebrenica in July 1995. The graffiti were placed on several locations in the towns of Bor and Bačka Palanka.
