The Law on Freedom of Religion "blew up" Montenegro and united the opposition

On the night of Thursday to Friday, the Parliament of Montenegro adopted the draft law “On Freedom of Religion and Belief and Legal Status of Religious Communities”, which infringes on the interests of the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC). The consideration of the document, which triggered a wave of public discontent, united the intransigent political opponents and resulted in thousands of protests across the country.

The adopted document provides for the withdrawal of church property from the SPO. We are talking about more than 650 shrines, including the Ostrog Monastery, widely known in the Orthodox world.

Earlier, the legislative committee of the Montenegrin Parliament, despite protests by believers, recognized the bill as constitutional, opening the way for voting.
