Church on site of bishop's hunger strike
BELGRADE -- A church was built on the border between Serbia and Montenegro, where Bishop Filaret last year went on a hunger strike that lasted 12 days.
The Serbian Orthodox (SPC) temple will be consecrated on Sunday.
The ceremony this weekend will be attended by outgoing Infrastructure Minister Velimir Ilić, NS, and the leader of Montenegro's Serb People's Party Andrija Mandić.
The bishop embarked on a protest after Montenegrin authorities denied him entry, citing concerns over the fact his name appeared on a Hague Tribunal list of alleged war crime fugitives' helpers.
Bishop Filaret told reporters he now faces no restrictions as he visits the SPC monasteries and churches in Montenegro's north, since he reports to that country's MUP before crossing the border.
