Problems have continued in the eastern town of Vukovar with more Cyrillic signs ripped down from official buildings overnight. In the early hours of Monday six new dual-alphabet Latin and Serbian Cyrillic were either stolen or smashed on Institutes in Vukovar…
The controversial signs were smashed on the building of the District Court, the District Attorney’s Office, the Health Institute and the County Attorney’s Office.
The Constitutional Law on the Rights of Ethnic Minorities in Croatia allows for ethnic minorities, where they made up more than a third of a city’s population, to be entitled to have their language used for official purposes. Around 35% of Vukovar’s population is made up of Serbian nationals, although that number is disputed.
