CROWN PRINCE ALEXANDER STRONGLY CONDEMNS VIOLENCE
IN FOOTBALL STADIUMS AND SCHOOLS
Belgrade, 16 April 2008 - His Royal Highness Crown Prince
Alexander II issued a statement today regarding the death of 26 year old
Dejan Dimitrijevic who was shot dead by rival football fans.
"I was shocked when I heard the news that another young
life, the most precious resource we have, was lost. Recently, one of our
pupils died after he was stabbed to death in front of the schoolyard. I
strongly condemn violence of any kind. I am also very concerned that there
is an increase of felonies committed by youth in our society. I know we have
suffered so much as a society, but there is no justification for violence.
We must have tolerance, whether it is in the political
arena, in schools, or in football stadiums. We can not afford to lose the
lives of our young people anymore", concluded the Crown Prince.
