Zone of (non)responsibility

Logo FHPMonday, 24th March, marks fifteen years since the Serbian army and police waged its systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing and violence directed against the Kosovo Albanian civilian population during the NATO intervention against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY). The Humanitarian Law Center (HLC) calls on the state institutions of the Republic of Serbia to secure justice for the victims of the crimes in Kosovo and their family members, by prosecuting all those responsible, regardless of their rank at the time of the commission of crimes or within the current hierarchies of power, and by providing just satisfaction to the victims for the suffering they endured.

Zone of (non)responsibility

With the goal to allow the public to learn about the facts and evidence concerning the crimes committed during the Kosovo war, as well as the wars in the former Yugoslavia, the HLC presents the Zone of (non)responsibility - an interactive web presentation of the crimes committed in the areas of responsibility of Serbian armed forces in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo, for which no one has been held responsible. In addition to the descriptions of the crimes, which are based on witness statements, the website presents excerpts of authentic military documents related to the crimes, as well as the police and military hierarchy of units in whose areas of responsibility these crimes were committed.
