Belgrade University students on Monday called the Serbian authorities to ask the UN Security Council and Council of Europe to look into the position of Serbs and Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro.

The student organizations also want the government to declare Montenegro’s ambassador in Belgrade persona non grata, limit relations with Serbia’s southern neighbor to consular level and throw Montenegrin diplomats out of the 40 Serbian embassies across the world that they were granted access to.  

Representatives of the University Law School Students’ Club and other student organizations delivered their requests to staff at the Serbian Presidency as a protest act following the introduction of the law of freedom of confession in Montenegro which critics say would allow the government to seize Serbian Orthodox Church properties.
