Resolution on attacks on the life and integrity of Serbian lawyers and their families – Warszawa, 22.09.18

23.09.2018

On September 22nd, 2018, the FBE’s General Assembly, representing about 250 member Bars together with their one million member lawyers, expressed its deep concern about the attacks on the life and integrity of Serbian lawyers and their families over the past three years, which resulted in the death of two lawyers, Dragoslav Ognjanovic and Vladimir Zrelec and Nemanja Stojanović. 

We draw attention to the fact that any attack on a lawyer in connection with the practice of a lawyer is an attack on the act of justice itself. 

We appeal to all Serbian Authorities to identify and judge as soon as possible the perpetrators of the murder and to take concrete steps to provide security and protection to Serbian lawyers in order to prevent such criminal activity in the future.
