A DENIAL OF THE PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE OF BIH REGARDING THE INCORRECT INFORMATION PUBLISHED ON THE WEB PORTAL KLIX.BA30.06.2020. 15:05
There can be no word about “lost cases”, because the cases against all persons prosecuted for war crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina are in the registers of the Prosecutor’s Office of BiH from 2004 to 2010. They are kept in the TCMS records, as well as in the databases of war crimes cases and these facts are clear to all who deal with the issue of prosecuting cases of international humanitarian law in detail.
The standard code “A” refers exclusively to persons and not to items.
Of the total number of persons registered in open KTRZ cases in the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina, only 4.49% are persons marked with the standard code “A”.
The Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina makes and submits regular reports to the Supervisory Body for Monitoring the Implementation of the State Strategy for Work on War Crimes Cases, which was established by the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Information on all cases can be obtained in accordance with the legislation governing access to information in criminal cases.
The Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina is open for cooperation with all institutions participating in the development of the National Strategy for Work on War Crimes Cases, as well as to associations of victims from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The publication of inaccurate and concocted information only harms the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina and makes its work on cases difficult.
