Youth Initiative for Human Rights screens ICTY documentary

Zagreb, 30 May 2012

The ICTY, in co-operation with the region-wide organisation the Youth Initiative for Human Rights (YIHR), today held a special screening of the Outreach documentary ‘Sexual Violence and the Triumph of Justice’ for a group of university students who are participating in a special training programme on transitional justice.

A group of 25 students attended the screening, as did representatives from the Dutch Embassy in Zagreb, which generously funded the project.

Inspired by the ICTY film, YIHR, working alongside a local women’s organisation, intends to campaign for a version of Rule 96 of the Tribunal’s Rules of Procedure and Evidence - which offers certain protections for victims of sexual violence testifying in court - to be incorporated into Croatian law.
