The Montenegrin police has banned a group of Serbian intellectuals and politicians from entering the country, claiming that they could pose a danger to national security, the Beta news agency reported quoting a newspaper report.
The Dan daily in the Montenegrin capital Podgorica said that the police confirmed that Montenegrin-born writer Matija Beckovic, historians Cedomir Antic and Aleksandar Rakovic and lawyer turned politician Dejan Mirovic had been banned from entering Montenegro.
Border police outposts have been sent a list of people who will not be allowed across the border, Dan said and added that all four were scheduled to speak at a gathering in Podgorica on the post-WW 1 anniversary of the merging of Montenegro and Serbia on December 1.
Speaking to the Belgrade Prva TV, Vucic said he was shocked by Podgorica authorities’ decision.
“Serbian state has to react,” Vucic said, adding Belgrade banned wanted criminals and members of criminal clans from entering Serbia, not those who had a different opinion.
Vucic said the Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic would talk to his Montenegrin counterpart, while he would discuss the issue with Milo Djukanovic, the president of Montenegro.
“We will decide on concrete measures if we don’t receive a more rational answer from Podgorica,” Vucic said.
