Serbia: authorities conceal environmental hazards?
Ecologists say the authorities in Serbia are concealing the extent of the ecological and health threats caused by NATO bombing.
It is obvious that the authorities are hiding the truth,” says Dusan Vasiljevic, chairman of the Belgrade Democratic Party’s ecology committee, “even though we could benefit from knowing the risks for the Yugoslav population.
“They are doing that for fear of those who are affected, and for fear of facing pressure to do something. On the other hand, they themselves are aware that they are not competent, nor can they do anything,” Vasiljevic adds.
Belgrade-based journalist, Milenko Vasovic, gives the inside story in an article published by the Institute for War and Peace Reporting – see link below.
