Bosnia and Herzegovina: Submission to the United Nations Human Rights Committee 119th Session, 6-29 March 2017

Index number: EUR 63/5554/2017. Amnesty International is presenting this submission to the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Committee (the Committee) ahead of its review of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH) third periodic report on the implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (the Covenant). The document highlights Amnesty International’s concerns in relation to a number of questions on the Committee’s List of Issues (LOI) to be taken up in connection with this consideration of the BiH State Report. These concerns relate to human rights violations linked to the legacy of the 1992-1995 conflict in BiH, and they include the continued failure of the authorities to adopt and implement legal and policy framework to enable full and effective access to justice and reparations for survivors of crimes of sexual violence committed during the war.
