Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) Sues Montenegro; Says State of Montenegro Has Seized SPC Property

The Orthodox Church Info blog reports today (May 22, 2011) that the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) Metropolitanate of Montenegro is suing the state of Montenegro before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

The lawsuit was filed over the SPC property in Montenegro that was seized from the SPC by Montenegro.

The unrecognized Montenegrin Orthodox Church contests the SPC's ownership of some property -- especially of churches and monasteries -- including the Cetinje Monastery.

Montenegrin Prime Minister Igor Luksic has said that he would initiate a dialogue regarding assets of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro.
