The OSCE Mission and the Delegation of the European Union to Serbia, in partnership with the Ministry of Justice, held a conference in Belgrade today to mark European Day for Victims of Crime. The organisations presented the draft 2019-2025 National Strategy on the Rights of Victims and Witnesses of Crime.
Members of the Working Group for drafting the National Strategy for Support for Victims and Witnesses visited Sweden at the beginning of December, in order to learn about the functioning of one of the most developed and comprehensive systems in this field.
The “Support for Victims and Witnesses of Crime in Serbia” project was presented at the annual meeting “Judge Days”, held in Vrnjačka Banja, which gathered 1500 judges from all over Serbia.
The goal of this three-year project is to establish a comprehensive national system of support for victims and witnesses; it is funded by the European Union with EUR 1.5 million, and the project is implemented by the OSCE Mission to Serbia.
The OSCE Mission to Serbia and the Delegation of the European Union to Serbia launched today in Belgrade a three-year project entitled Support for Victims and Witnesses of Crime in Serbia.
"I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must
take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor,
never the tormented." - Eli Vizel
