EAJC urged authorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina to act against growing anti-semitism

In Sarajevo, several concerned citizens have informed the local press about the graffiti of Nazi swastika drawn on a city building. This act of vandalism is one of the multiple Neo-Nazi manifestations in Bosnia today.

The response to this heinous act affirms that Bosnian citizens are outraged at these hateful acts. However, unlike some EU countries, Bosnian authorities do not ban the use of Nazi symbols as well as Neo-Nazi groups, allowing these anti-Semitic organizations to operate and circulate its materials to the public.

“We are deeply concerned about the growing Neo-Nazi movement in Bosnia and call on state leaders to take a stand against this dangerous and shameful phenomenon”,- said EAJC President Mikhail Mirilashvili.
