Jasmina Mikovic, Deputy Executive Director of non-governmental organization Praxis, says for Daily Danas that Praxis has joined the action "I am Roma and I exist" implemented by the Police Department of the City of Belgrade in cooperation with OSCE Mission to Serbia.
The aim of this project is to raise the awareness of the Roma population about the importance of possession of personal documents, which is the precondition for the exercise of fundamental human rights. The project activities include visits to informal Roma settlements in the territory of the Municipalities of Palilula and Cukarica. In addition, a bilingual information bulletin has been prepared with an aim to point out to the importance of the possession of personal documents and relevant procedures for their obtaining.
Praxis lawyers draw up and submit requests and other submissions to relevant state bodies and institutions representing thus the interests of persons who are not able alone to protect and exercise their rights before the stated bodies nor are they able to pay lawyers' services of representation in various procedures, says Jasmina Mikovic.
