Collection and Disposal

In the course of 2005 and 2006 the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Serbia (MIA), within the framework of the project SACISCG 2 implemented in cooperation with UNDP, carried out two operations of destruction of confiscated or collected weapons. These weapons were melted in the US Stillworks Smederevo.

Overall, on two separate occasions, 14,936 pieces of various arms were destroyed, including 1,949 rifles, 2,220 hunting rifles, 1,259 automatic rifles, 142 machine guns, 56 rocket launchers, 4,441 handguns and 4,878 pieces of other weapons.

The first such destruction took place on 17 December 2005 and the second on 11 March 2006.

The Republic of Serbia has received a UNDP donation of US$67,212 to cover the cost of this destruction.
