Medical letter writing action: Croatia: Doctor charged with service in an enemy army: Jadrana Funduk

, N° d'index: EUR 64/002/1993

Doctor Jadrana Funduk has been charged with "service in an enemy army" under Article 109 of the Basic Criminal Law of the Republic of Croatia. The charges relate to a period of time between late 1991 and early 1993 when she worked in a military hospital in Belgrade. If convicted she faces a sentence of five years or longer. Her trial in a military court opened on 13 October but was immediately adjourned to permit the gathering of further evidence. There is concern that if convicted she may be a prisoner of conscience, imprisoned in violation of Article 16.1 of the First Additional Protocol to the Geneva Conventions, solely for having exercised her profession.
