A Serb Orthodox Church will be opened in the upper part of the Potocari martyrdom where the Srebrenica massacre victims are lying.
Church's Replacement Committee head Sehida Abdurrahmanovic described the church as an "obstinacy church."
Abdurrahmanovic said that some senior officials and international authorities had promised to take responsibility to stop the construction of the church. She aded "but they did nothing but to give permission for the construction of the church."
Abdurrahmanovic stressed that some high-level state officials and representatives of international organizations had done nothing so far to stop the construction, and they had burdened the local government with responsibility; however, the local government was unauthorized for this issue.
The church's construction is still ongoing. It is not only located in the upper part of the Potocari martyrdom but also close to the "Budak 2" martyrdom where 137 Srebrenica victims are lying.
The relatives of the Srebrenica victims are anxious about the probable existence of a mass grave as large as the Potocari martyrdom under the ongoing church construction.
July 11, 1995 marked the slaying of more than 8,000 Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) boys and men, perpetrated by Bosnian Serb forces in Srebrenica, a town in eastern Bosnia-Herzegovina. In addition to the killings, more than 20,000 civilians were expelled from the area—a process known as ethnic cleansing. The genocide as the worst episode of mass murder within Europe since World War II, helped galvanize the West to press for a cease-fire that ended three years of warfare on the Bosnian territory. However, it left deep emotional scars on survivors and enduring obstacles to political reconciliation between Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia.
