Bosnia-Herzegovina: Living for the day: forced expulsions from Bijeljina and Janja (includes correction)

Index Number: EUR 63/022/1994

This document is based largely on interviews with displaced persons conducted by AI in Tuzla in October 1994. They had all left their homes in the Serb-controlled towns of Bijeljina and Janja in northeast Bosnia between July and September 1994. Their statements reveal a systematic plan to expel the remaining Muslims and to extort money and property from them. The report describes a pattern of human rights abuses aimed at expelling non-Serbs from areas controlled by Bosnian Serb forces, giving background information about the situation in Bijelina and Janja during the first two years of the war, as well as about the new wave of expulsions which began in July 1994.
