The Vucjak migrant camp must be closed today, Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Dunja Mijatovic said on Tuesday upon her arrival at the improvised tent camp near the northern Bosnian city of Bihac.
Vucjak must be closed today, said Human Rights Commissioner Dunja Mijatovic said after arriving at Camp Vucjak near Bihac, where the biggest concentration of Migrants in the country currently is.
During her visit, Mijatovic will visit the Bira and Sedra shelters in Bihac and Cazin, as well as the Usivak migrant centre near Sarajevo.
She will also hold meetings with representatives of state and cantonal authorities, as well as international organizations and non-governmental organizations dealing with migration.
She will present her preliminary observations at a press conference scheduled for December 6.
The northern Bosnian towns of Bihac and Velika Kladusa were hit the hardest with the migrant crisis affecting Bosnia after Hungary and Bulgaria raised hard borders, preventing them from coming into their countries on their way to western Europe, thus effectively cutting the “Balkan route.”
