Serbia may impose ‘more drastic measures’ against migrants

Serbia’s minister for labour, employment, war veterans and social issues said on September 14 that he would demand from the government to adopt “more concrete measures” in order to prevent an “uncontrolled influx of migrants” into the country.

Aleksandar Vulin, who is also in charge for migrants and refugees issues, also suggested installing “certain impediments”. Vulin specified that he would raise the issue as early as prime minister Aleksandar Vucic returns from his three-day visit to France. Vucic went to France on September 14.

“It is time to propose to the premier some more drastic measures taking into account that the structure of the migrants has been changed and that more and more economic migrants are among them. We have military and police deployed at the borders, but maybe installing barriers and certain impediments could be among the solution for reducing the number of migrants,” Belgrade media quoted Vulin as saying.
