Victims’ assoc. call for stronger action in finding the missing and prosecuting those responsible

The Association of Victims and Witnesses of Genocide and the Association “Mothers of the Srebrenica and Žepa Enclaves” issued a press release today on the occasion of the International Day of the Disappeared, August 30, in which they state that more than 7,000 killed during the aggression against Bosnia and Herzegovina have not been found to this day.
On this occasion, they remind of the statement by António Guterres, the UN Secretary-General, in which he calls on member states to fulfill their responsibility towards crime victims and their families.
“Impunity increases suffering and anxiety. Under international human rights law, families and societies have the right to know the truth about what had happened. I call on the member states to meet that responsibility,” said Guterres.
As stated in the statement, Bosnia and Herzegovina has not yet found more than 7,000 people killed during the aggression.
“On this occasion, we call on those responsible, especially those who know or have information about possible mass or individual graves, to provide information to the authorities so that the families can find peace and to continue with the criminal prosecution of war criminals,” reads the statement
