Opening of Readmission Center in Mostar Today

A re-admission center will be opened in Mostar today, which was reconstructed and equipped under the project “Establishment of a Functional and Sustainable System of Implementation of Readmission Agreements”.

This project was implemented on the basis of the signed agreement between the BiH Ministry of Human Rights and Refugees and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

The assistant Minister for Human Rights and Refugees of BiH Mario Nenadić confirmed that the Minister of Human Rights and Refugees Damir Ljubić and the Ambassador of Switzerland to BiH Andre Schaller would open the Center.

According to Nenadić, citizens of BiH would reside in the Center. The BiH Ministry for Security conducted thorough inspections of the Center, and confirmed that the Center is for BiH citizens and that it is the basis of readmission agreements for returnees from some countries with whom BiH has signed an agreement on readmission.

“It is a center where BiH citizens will live and be provided with short-term care. The goal was not to form a center where people will come back and live, but to have a center whose task is to implement some form of triage before they found out the actual address of the returnees upon the readmission agreements, and before they go to their final destination somewhere in BiH”, explained Nenadić.

He stated that BiH, in its path to Euro Atlantic integration, has as one of its obligations the issue of planning procedures and other international legal obligations under readmission.
