Vandal act over the shrine of Saint Vasilije of Ostrog near Gusinje, Montenegro

The church-yard of St. Vasilije of Ostrog in the village of Martinovići near Gusinje, Montenegro, has constantly been under attacks of a group of vandals, but the State Security Centre has not done anything concerning that.

The recently erected gate and fence around the church property, in order to prevent entry of cattle into the church, has been taken away this morning, according to the words of the parish priest Bojan Radunović. He says that the gate was in its place last night, and this morning around 7 o'clock passers-by noticed that it was not there, and consequently he informed the Church Board about it. The priest Radunović assumes that it was an organized action in which several people had to participate, considering the fact that the gate was very heavy and of large dimensions. He and members of the Church Board visited the surrounding area, within a circle of 5-6 kilometers, but without any success.
