The Director of the Directorate for Cooperation with the Diaspora and Serbs in the Region, Arno Gujon, was presented with the Order of the Protector of the Serbian Land in Belgrade today in recognition of the campaign for the preservation of property of Serbs in the territory of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH).

The order was presented to Gujon in the premises of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia by the president of the Committee for the Protection of Serb Rights in the FBiH, Đorđe Radanović, the Administration for Cooperation with the Diaspora and Serbs in the Region announced.

Gujon wrote on “Facebook” that the order of that name is extremely binding on him and that he hopes he will justify it as much as possible.

“This is a recognition for the entire Administration, our representative offices and churches, because for the past year we have been working together to get to know our people scattered around the world at the risk of being left without their ancestral homes in the territory of FBiH”, said Gujon.

A year ago, the administration headed by Gujon launched a campaign to inform Serbs scattered around the world and pointed out to them the danger of being left without their ancestral home in the territory of the current FBiH due to the adjustment of the land register and cadastral department.

The Administration points out that the result of that work is 9,473 cases, because so many families responded and completed the necessary legal procedure, thanks to which more than 57,000 hectares of land will remain in their ownership.
