Montenegro set to advance public peace and order. UN War Crimes Prosecutor praises Monetengro’s “positive role.” Montenegro committed to raising level of digital literacy of its citizens

Montenegro’s Cabinet endorsed at Thursday’ s session the Bill Amending the Law on Public Peace and Order aimed to define terms, legal institutions and characteristics of the offense against public peace and order more comprehensively, the Interior Ministry’s representative Milos Vukcevic told the press. The bill introduces new offences that have direct adverse impact on public peace and order and eliminates the existing gaps of certain provisions of the current law and possibilities for thier ambigious interpretation and application, Vukcevic added.

The fact that I am in Montenegro now for the first time is a confirmation that the country and the Tribunal for former Yugoslavia have no open issues. I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the intensive and committed cooperation of the Montenegrin institutions with the Hague Tribunal and for the very positive role Montenegro plays in the region in this area, the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, ICTY, Serge Brammertz has said during his meeting with Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic in Podgorica on Thursday.

Ministry for Information Society and Telecommunications has made significant efforts towards raising the level of digital literacy of Montenegrin citizens. The results achieved so far form a solid basis for further improvements in this area, the ministry’s representative Radule Novovic said. The “ECDL – for Digital Montenegro” project was particularly aimed at improving digital literacy of civil servants.
