It is necessary to form an interdepartmental working group

Belgrade, March 7, 2023.

The Ministry of Finance held a meeting of representatives of municipalities from the south of Serbia, burdened with mass claims (mass lawsuits) related to land expropriation (during the earlier construction of local roads). State Secretaries Slavica Savičić and Saša Stevanović and Assistant Minister Vojislav Lazarević participated in the meeting on behalf of the ministry. Mihajlo Čolak, Program Director of the Committee for Human Rights Niš, participated in the meeting as expert support to the municipalities on behalf of the Judiciary Base South (PBJ) coalition. Mihajlo, after the introduction of MP Milija Miletić, supported his proposal and pointed out the necessity of forming an interdepartmental working group composed of representatives of the Government, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Finance, as well as other appropriate bodies, which would comprehensively deal with solving the problem of mass claims, not only when it comes to expropriations, but in general.
