The fire in the Lipa migrant camp

The Bosnian "refugee" camp near Lipa burned down on December 23, 2020. The timing is suspicious since one inevitably thinks of Moria and the consequences. What better way to soften European hearts shortly before Christmas Eve in order to achieve a similar effect? However, the Lipa case has some deviations from Moria, but none of them can really be explained.

    The camp in Bosnia was operated by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The German daily Tagesschau wrote about the IOM camp on December 14: “The International Organization for Migration (IOM) operates refugee shelters all over Bosnia and Herzegovina. The IOM was not happy with the Lipa location in the spring. Because there is no infrastructure around the warehouse. It is neither connected to water nor to the electricity network and can only be reached via a dirt road.”

    Because the IOM found the camp to be a problem, the organization threatened to stop running it. It even gave the central government of Bosnia-Herzegovina an ultimatum, the Tagesschau reported.

    “If no solution can be found for the camp, the IOM will abandon it, IOM regional coordinator Peter Van der Auweraert announced in the Bosnian media. And that is by no means a bluff, emphasized the employee Natasa Zunic Omerovic at the gate to Camp Lipa: ‘On December 16, all of us will no longer show up for work. The people will then be homeless and not get the help that their human rights require’.”

    In fact, the IOM then suspended aid and the migrants left the camp.

    The larger city of Bihac was supposed to provide an empty factory hall as accommodation and EU funds had been promised for this. But the mayor refused, as German broadcaster ZDF reported on December 29: “First we have to look after our own citizens, now after refugees so that they can get through the winter. That must not become our problem.”

    A second alternative location, a barracks near Sarajevo, was blocked by the residents according to ZDF. The “refugees” had to spend the night in buses and some of them are now back at their starting point − the burned down camp near Lipa. This created the desired urgent humanitarian intervention scenario for all those who want to import “refugees” into the EU.

    “No food, no money, big problem,” reported the ZDF’s Heute-Journal exclusively on site. “I came for a better future”, an Afghan complained in front of a German camera, “but Lipa is not that”.

    It appears that the IOM itself had triggered the disaster in Lipa by being “understanding” about the migrants destroying their accommodation in a fire. The matter becomes even more dubious when one realizes that the IOM works closely with the German federal government, as stated on its website.

    “The Federal Republic of Germany has been a member state of the IOM since 1954. In Berlin, Nuremberg, Frankfurt/Main and Brandenburg, IOM employees implement migration projects in cooperation with state and non-state partners from politics, civil society and research.” The head of the IOM has good relations with the leftwing political party, the SPD in particular. Monica Goracci spoke in 2017 at a congress of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung on the subject of “#arrived: Europe and the world – perspectives of refugee policy”.

    It can therefore hardly be assumed that the IOM canceled its humanitarian aid in Bosnia without prior consultation with the Federal Chancellery or the Foreign Ministry. The organization willfully contributed to the fact that the migrants are once again stranded a the burned down tent camp.
