Reactions to Decision on Popova Sapka Cross Continue

The Tetovo-Gostivar Diocese has already received the decision from Tetovo’s local authorities for a removal of the cross on Popova Sapka church property. The Diocese, however, said on Tuesday it would file a complaint over the matter.

“We call on citizens not to fall for the increasingly frequent provocations and be dedicated to peace and good interreligious relations,” it said.

According to Mayor Bilall Kasami’s Cabinet, though the Cross is on church land, there was no permit for its construction.
