On January 22nd, 2014, residents of Banja Vrujci, revolted by the akt of asylum seekers, blocked the road Mionica – Ljig for one hour. Asylum seekers have found accomodation in one of the villas in Banja without informing one of the reception centers about it. Police has conducted asylum seekers to the reception centers in Padinska Skela and Bogovadja.
After they have applied for asylum in the police department in Valjevo, 19 asylum seekers have found accommodation in one of the villas in Banja Vrujci by themselves, without informing any reception center about it. Revolted by that act, residents organized a protest.
“We have nothing against them, but it is not right that they are coming here and make asylum center because this is a tourist place”, said Zeljko Milovanovic, president of the local community Banja Vrujci.
Members of the Police Department in cooperation with the Border Police have conducted these 19 asylum seekers to the reception centers in Padinska Skela and Bogovadja because they did not have adequate confirmations that they were requested accommodation in any asylum center in Serbia.
In the Commissariat for Refugees and Migration said that there is enough room for all asylum seekers.
