Parliamentary Committee accepts BIA report

Director of BIA Sasa Vukadinovic pointed out that Serbia is continuously exposed to certain security risks and that they are the highest priority of BIA’s work, since the destabilization of Serbia and other countries in the region is possible. The parliamentary Committee on Defense and Security accepted Wednesday the reports on the work of the Security – Information Agency (BIA) from March to October 2009 and on the country’s security situation, and the greatest number of objections at the session, which lasted around three hours, came from the MPs of the Radical Party of Serbia (SRS). Eight members of the Committee voted for accepting the reports, whereas four radicals abstained from voting. Presenting the reports to the committee members, Director of BIA Sasa Vukadinovic said that the security situation in Serbia is stable, that the act of illegal self-proclamation of independence of Kosovo and Metohija remains the biggest destabilizing factor and that the agency’s priority is to complete the cooperation with The Hague Tribunal. He pointed out that Serbia is continuously exposed to certain security risks and that they are the highest priority of BIA’s work, since the destabilization of Serbia and other countries in the region is possible. (…) Vukadinovic underlined that the agency carefully considered the activities of the ultra-right organizations, neo-Nazi and other extreme groups, and added that, when it comes to this issue, a good cooperation was established with the MUP and that the exchange of information led to arresting of some members of such organizations.
