Constitutional Court rules on Kosovo-related motions
BELGRADE -- A decree on the control of crossings along the administrative line with the autonomous province of Kosovo and Metohija is not in line with the Constitution.
This has been determined by the Constitutional Court of Serbia.
The Constitutional Court made the decision on March 26 - but at the same time rejected the demand to stop the execution of individual acts and documents and actions undertaken based on the decree, it was published on the court's website.
The Serbian government adopted the decree on the control of crossings along the administrative line with the autonomous province of Kosovo and Metohija on December 23, 2011, and the motion for declaring it unconstitutional was submitted by 25 MPs, 21 of whom belong to the Democratic Party of Serbia (DSS).
In the reasoning behind the motion, they said that the decree constituted a severe violation of the unity and territorial integrity of Serbia.
During the same sitting, the Constitutional Court rejected an initiative to review the constitutionality of the decision to accept the report on the EU-facilitated political and technical dialogue with the interim institutions of self-government in Pristina.
The Court also rejected the initiative to review the constitutionality of the government's conclusions delivered on April 22, 2013, with which it accepted the First Agreement of Principles Governing the Normalization of Relations between Belgrade and Pristina (i.e., the Brussels agreement).
