That Serbian Orthodox Church (SOC) awarded to the leader of the extremist Serbian Radical Party (SRP), Vojislav Seseljwho was sentenced in 2018 by the Hague tribunal to ten years in prison for inciting the persecution, deportation and forced resettlement of Croats in the village of Hrtkovci in Vojvodina in 1992.
That command of the Holy Bishop Mardari, as handed over to him personally by Bishop Irinei Bulatovich. “It is my great honor to present this order‘ said the bishop at the award ceremony. This isn’t the first order that the SOC gave to the war criminal Vojislav Seselj. Seven years ago he received the “White Angel” order – First degree, from the Serbian Orthodox Church.
“long time the SOC is not religious. It’s a political organization. It has become an umbrella for the darkest people and manifestations in this land. In the end is the SOC will be the undertaker of our country. And I am absolutely convinced of that. Around Seselj I can say this myself: once a war criminal, a war criminal for life‘ Aida Corovic, one of Serbia’s most prominent human rights activists, told Danas.
According to sociologist Vesna Pesic, President Aleksandar Vucic cannot openly defend Vladimir Putin, so he has this task Serbian Orthodox Church and the extreme right. “SOC has nothing to do with religion. It has become a political factor, uniting the extreme nationalist organizations that took part in the wars to create Greater Serbia. For them, Putin is a role model“ said also Vesna Pesic.
We remind our readers of that Seselj was imprisoned by the International War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague from 2003 to 2014.
