The representatives of the “Woman-War Victim” Association Sarajevo requested that cases of sexual violence be prosecuted exclusively before the Prosecutor’s Office and the Court of BiH, on which judicial and international institutions, as well as the public of Bosnia and Herzegovina, were informed earlier.
