MEMBERS of the Assembly of Serbia continue their work, and today, before the deputies, among other things, are the amendments to the Law on Expropriation.
The Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, Branislav Nedimović, said, explaining the changes in the law in the Parliament, that they set shorter deadlines for the actions of the bodies when it comes to deciding on requests for expropriation.
– The deadlines for the actions of the competent authorities are being shortened, the issue of illegal expropriation facilities is being resolved, the issue of administrative transfer is being defined – Nedimović said in the Assembly of Serbia.
According to him, the proposed solution stipulates that the subject of expropriation can be all forms of ownership, including real estate in public ownership, which has not been the case so far.
He specified that the amendments to the law shorten the deadlines for the actions of the body in whose competence the action on the request for determining the public interest is and expands the basis for determining the public interest.
– It turned out to be justified to determine the public interest in the case of reconstruction and adaptation of an existing facility, and not only in the case of their construction and in the case when the project is important for Serbia and when the project is part of an interstate agreement – said is Nedimović.
He explained that there was a problem in the case of some railway corridors where, he says, there was a need for expropriation, and it was a matter of reconstruction.
– That was our biggest problem in the case (reconstruction of the railway) Nis-Dimitrovgrad. You had a bunch of buildings on the road that used to be in public ownership, so they went into private ownership through privatization. And then you get into trouble. You cannot easily get to those plots that are necessary for reconstruction – said Nedimović.
