Summary/Abstract: Recently the members of parliament were presented with several suggestions and two strategies for the area of security and defence. Among the important documents there was a proposal law on the amendments of Law of Serbian Army, that seemed of a less importance. In this proposal it was demanded, among other things, to insert the article 14a into law of Serbian Army, by which it was forbiden for the army professionals to be in contact with any of the numerous organisations in Serbia, that deal with European integrations or issues of security and defence. This article has no grounds, since it is not complied with the Constitution or law of Serbian Army, and it has political reprecussions. By adopting Article14a we return to the very begining, to the nineties, when the security sector treated citizen associations as ”insiders.”
