BANJALUKA, MAY 22 /SRNA/ - The death of innocent babies is a painful wound in the hearts of their mothers, families and the whole Serbian people which testifies to the crime that was committed under the eyes of world potentates, Speaker of the National Assembly of Republika Srpska Nedeljko Čubrilović said on the occasion of the 28th anniversary of the deaths of babies at the Banjaluka Clinical Center for the lack of Oxygen.


“Not to allow the delivery of Oxygen to save the lives of babies is, to say at least, an inhuman political decision by which they punished one nation. The deaths of babies will remain an eternal and moving memory in the conscience of Republika Srpska,” Čubrilović said in a written statement.

Čubrilović expressed sympathies with grieving mothers of 12 babies who died, stressing that only thanks to the decisiveness and courage of the Republika Srpska Army, a corridor towards Serbia was breached and Oxygen and medical aid arrived in Republika Srpska, saving many lives.

“But, sad and painful memories of the deaths of new-born babies will remain forever in the collective conscience of our people,” said Čubrilović.

In May and June 1992, international flights, even those carrying Oxygen tanks from Belgrade to Banjaluka, were banned by the decision of the UN Security Council which is why 12 new-born babies in incubators died.

After this tragic event, the Republika Srpska Army breached a corridor through the Posavina and liberated an area towards the border with Serbia, which until then was blocked by the Muslim and Croatian forces.

May 22 is the date when this event is marked as the first of the 12 babies died for the lack of Oxygen on this day in 1992, and others died until June 19 of that year. /end/sg
