Bosnia-Herzegovina: honouring the ghosts: challenging impunity for disappearances

This document states that disappearances represent perhaps the largest unresolved human rights issue in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The number of victims and their relatives is huge. Virtually no cases have resulted in those responsible having been brought to justice and the trauma of relatives and dependants left behind has not healed. As is the case with other human rights violations of the recent past, the plight of the victims risks being written off as an inevitable and intractable by-product of the war.
