Serbia: Concerted efforts needed to address the legacy of the past, protect media freedoms and ensure inclusive education

“Serbia has to move forward resolutely in addressing the legacy of the past,  establish an adequate environment for media work and overcome the remaining obstacles to inclusive education.” said today Nils Muižnieks, Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, following a four-day follow-up visit to the country carried out from 19 to 22 February 2018.

Noting as an important step forward in addressing the legacy of the past, the recent discussions of the presidents of Serbia and Croatia, including the issue of missing persons from the 1990s’ war in the region, the Commissioner calls on all the countries in the region, including Serbia, to step up their work in addressing the remaining obstacles to establishing the fate of missing persons, including by opening of military and police archives that may hold important information about missing persons.
