NOTE: The War Crimes Verdicts Map include verdicts that have been made publicly available by local courts and by the ICTY. The map is not final and is updated every six months. LAST UPDATE 30 SEPTEMBER 2019.

About

The War Crimes Verdicts Map is an interactive tool designed by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network to provide an overview of court rulings on the crimes that were committed during the wars in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.

The map includes all final war crimes verdicts that have been handed down by national courts in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Kosovo and Serbia and are publicly available. It also includes verdicts handed down by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia located in the Netherlands, and cases in which defendants died during their trials at the ICTY. In some of the countries, BIRN is still waiting for courts to provide all the verdicts.

Dates of proceedings in the cases section reflect the period from when the indictment was confirmed until the final verdict. In some cases, there was no data about when the indictment was issued. The ‘In Figures’ section is a summary of data from the cases shown on the map – these are not official statistics issued by the courts.

The War Crimes Verdicts Map is part of BIRN’s Balkan Transitional Justice initiative, funded by the European Commission, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland and Robert Bosch Stiftung. The project aims to improve the general public’s understanding of transitional justice issues in former Yugoslav countries – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.
