The minister stressed that the gathering would probably lead to significant violation of public law and order and that it would upset the citizens.
He pointed out in the release that the “the ban has removed danger of bigger incidents and unrest”.
The Croat authorities have also ordered St Stephen’s Church to remove the monument to Serb victims within three days.
The Environment, Spatial Planning and Construction Ministry has determined that two thirds of the place that the monument was built on belong to the state and that only one third belongs to the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC).
Names of 34 Golubić residents who were killed in the 1991-1995 war are inscribed on the monument. Most of the victims were killed in the Croat military Operation Storm in 1995.
