COMEUFOR visits Novo Sarajevo and Visegrad

June 16, 2018 6:00 PM

A busy day of community visits took place on Wednesday 13th June. The EUFOR Liaison and Observation Team (LOT) houses at Novo Sarajevo and Visegrad were the destinations for COMEUFOR. The purpose of the two visits was to meet the EUFOR staff working in the houses and to get an update on their work in the community. The EUFOR LOT houses are the ‘eyes and ears’ of EUFOR throughout BiH, they provide situational awareness and are vital for engagement with key local leaders.

During the SARAJEVO visit COMEUFOR also witnessed a Mine Risk Education (MRE) lesson delivered to pupils at POFALICI Primary School. The lesson was delivered by OF-2 Lubos JANUSKA, OR-8 Juraj ZUBEK and translated by Izet Eljsani.

MRE provides children and adults with the knowledge of the possible threat and how best to avoid it. The content is delivered by EUFOR’s Liaison and Observation Teams (LOTs) and Mine Information Coordination Cell (MICC). The training is closely regulated by the BiH Government to international standards. Each LOT is provided with an educational ‘package’ so they are able to travel to schools, workplaces and homes to give the presentations to those who need it.
