Bosnia & Herzegovina

Our news in Bosnia and Herzegovina, clear and analytic

Significant progress has been made in the pursuit of justice for crimes committed during the Bosnian War and the Srebrenica genocide. Large-scale atrocities such as ethnic cleansing, concentration camps, systematic rapes, and massacres have been subject to investigations, shedding light on the trials of those responsible. Judicial proceedings related to international crimes committed during the 1992-1995 Bosnian War began in 2005 under the supervision of the War Crimes Department of the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Office of the Prosecutor. However, despite nearly three decades of national and international prosecutions, including before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), divergent narratives, denial of crimes, and varying degrees of support for war criminals persist in Bosnia and Herzegovina and neighboring Serbia. While news coverage on this judicial front may be scarce, Justice Info continues to provide 100% independent information supported by the analysis of our experts in international justice.
