State Secretary of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Serbia Mr Gojko Stanivuković informed the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe of the measures that the Republic of Serbia has taken in implementation of the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights "Ališić v. Serbia".
Mr Stanivuković highlighted full commitment of Serbia to the multilateralism, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights. He also said that Serbia is a proven friend of Convention and a defender of its values. Complying with the Strasbourg Court judgements and holding the Conventions values high is not just a legal obligation of the authorities in Belgrade, but a choice of key importance for the strengthening of democracy, rule of law and human rights, as well as for the progress in the European integration, the State Secretary underlined. Serbia today has a limited number of execution cases pending before the Committee of Ministers.
The Committee of Ministers welcomed the major progress achieved by the Serbian authorities in the execution of the judgment as well as their commitment to continue this work.
Having concluded that the repayment mechanism to recover “old” foreign-currency savings met the criteria set out in the judgment and that the necessary measures had been adopted, the Committee of Ministers decided to close the examination of this case.
