On the occasion of an incident that recently happened at the Blazuj reception center for migrants which involved a fight between hundreds of migrants, Interior Minister of the Canton Sarajevo (CS) Ismir Jusko visited the center and members of the Police Directorate of the Ministry of Interior of Canton Sarajevo working there.
During the visit, Minister Jusko met with camp manager Stevan Jugovic and his associate Eldin Becovic to discuss the current security situation at the migrant center, the reasons for the conflict between migrants, and possibly expanding the capacity to accommodate new migrants.
“Despite the large number of new tasks that MoI CS has received over the past month, one of the ministry’s biggest priorities is the relocation of migrants from the streets, as well as providing security for the Blažuj reception center where more than 2.000 migrants are placed,” said Jusko.
He added that cultural differences among migrants are often the cause of their conflicts, and that is why members of the MoI CS will secure the Blazuj reception center in the future.
For his part, Jugovic expressed his gratitude to the MoI CS members for their support and cooperation so far, and especially for their swift response during the conflict, which resulted in no major consequences.
