Protests against law on religious communities continue Izvor: N1

Protests against the newly-adopted law on religious communities continued in Montenegro with religious processions organized in Niksic, Ulcinj and, for the first time, in Virpazar.

The Montenegrin parliament adopted the law just before the New Year despite protests from the faithful and the political opposition who claimed that the law would allow the authorities to seize properties from the Serbian Orthodox Church.  

Thousands of the faithful formed a procession following a service in the St Vasilije Ostroski church in Niksic. Another procession was formed in the town of Virpazar on the shores of Lake Skadar and a third in the southern coastal town of Ulcinj which has a majority Albanian population.
