The defendant confessed his participation in the crime at Ovčara

The confession of the defendant, Ivan Atanasijević, at the trial of 16 persons accused of war crime against prisoners of war committed at the Ovčara farm (Croatia) on 20 November 1991, before the War Crimes Chamber in Belgrade, is the first confession of guilt before a domestic court.


Law on Police Must Not be Placed Above the Law on Free Access to Information

The Humanitarian Law Center (HLC) believes that the Law on Police is not contributing enough to establishing public control over the police work and that certain provisions of this law are confronting the Law on Free Access to Information. This is unacceptable since the Law on Free Access to Information is considered a special law and it has priority in comparison with the Law on Police.
