, Index number: EUR 63/5866/2017

Ahead of the United Nations Human Rights Committee review of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH) third periodic report on the implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Amnesty International has presented a submission to the Committee, highlighting concerns in relation to human rights violations linked to the legacy of the 1992 – 1995 armed conflict in BiH.
