Montenegro expels 30 monks and priests of the Serbian Orthodox Church

Serbian priests and monks

 Montenegro will evict more than 30 monks and priests of the Serbian Orthodox Church. With their family members, there are about fifty citizens working in this country. As the Montenegrin media writes, with the laws on registration of residence and work permit, official Podgorica closed the doors to Serbian citizens who, according to the laws of the Ministry of Interior, do not meet the conditions to live and perform religious services in Montenegro, where the Serbian Orthodox Church operates.

On this occasion, the Serbian Orthodox Church reacted, saying that "this is a political decision and that will use all the legal rights in order the status of employees in this institution to acquire the right of residence and employment".

The Serbian Orthodox Church noted that the 30 monks, priests and members of their families, who until this year had a regular residence in Montenegro, are not allowed any more by the MInistry of INternal Affaris.

"They are forced to leave Montenegro until the end of the procedure. The complaints were filed at the Administrative Court. In some cases have been rejected and some of the proceedings are still ongoing," the Serbian Orthodox Church said.
