On 22 May, the Cantonal Court in Novi Travnik (CC Novi Travnik) reached a guilty verdict in a wartime sexual violence case, sentencing the first accused to three and a half years of imprisonment and the second accused to five and a half years. The Court also accepted the compensation claim submitted by the representative of the victim and ordered the accused to pay the victim EUR 11,380. The Mission assisted the Cantonal Prosecutor’s Office Travnik (CPO Travnik) in conducting (for the first time ever in Bosnia and Herzegovina) a video-link interview during the investigation phase. The Mission developed the procedure and the template for its use, and it assisted CPO Travnik in meeting all the technical and legal requirements to secure the victim’s testimony from Canada, which was essential for closing the ten-year investigation into the case. With the assistance of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and good co-operation between RCMP and CPO Travnik as well as CC Novi Travnik, the victim testified via video-link at the main trial.
