Denis Becirovic

Denis Becirovic, born 1975 in Tuzla.

Professor of history and geography, MA in history and now an SDP B&H member of the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

  • Having in mind the need to build trust between the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina, he recognized the importance of promoting positive examples about the protection of life in the community and the basic human rights of the nations and citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
  • Denis Becirovic recognized in Srdjan Alekisic a symbol of civil courage and decided to champion the historical and political recognition of civil courage as permanent value. On 23rd of May 2007, he proposed that:
  • "The House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina adopt the proposition that the Council of Ministers is responsible for cooperation with the authorities of the municipality of Trebinje and are to assist financially in the construction of the monument to Srdjan Aleksic in Trebinje''. In the explanation of his initiative he wrote:
  • "27 year old Srdjan Aleksic was killed in January 1993 in Trebinje, defending his fellow citizen Alen Glavovic, whom three soldiers of the Republic of Srpska were beating. Srdjan managed to save the life of his fellow citizen, but this magnificent act of civil courage and humanity caused him to lose his own life. His father Rade wrote: ''He died doing his duty as a human being''...I believe that the murder of Srdjan must not be forgotten, but must be an everlasting message for the future - a message we have to preserve as an example of civil solidarity. It is time for the authorities, the media and other segments of the society in Bosnia and Herzegovina forcefully to emphasize the positive examples in the history of our country. If it were not for people like Srdjan Aleksic, this country would have no future."
  • At its tenth parliamentary sitting on the 13th of June 2007 the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina adopted this proposition. Twenty-nine votes were cast in its favor while five members were abstained.
