Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia): Vuk and Danica Draskovic
There is concern that despite reports that Vuk and Danica Draskovic were severely ill-treated by Serbian law enforcement officials during and after their arrest on 2 June 1993, no investigation has been conducted into the circumstances of their arrest and detention, and no attempt has been made to bring those responsible to justice. Vuk Draskovic, a writer and President of the Serbian Renewal Movement, and his wife Danica, a law graduate and a member of the board of the same party, were arrested and beaten by police on 2 June following anti-government demonstrations. They were further severely beaten during their detention. On 9 July they were released, although a charge of obstructing the police remains against Mr Draskovic.
