Press releases

On the occasion of the recent violence by the police against citizens protesting at the City Hall on Sunday, December 24th, 2023, the Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights – YUCOM is highlighting concern about the excessive use of force by police officers. This disproportionate use of force evident in multiple videos circulating on social media and in the news overtly violates citizens’ fundamental rights to freedom, security, and peaceful assembly.

The journey towards legal recognition of same-sex partnerships in Serbia has been ongoing for years. The National Strategy for the Prevention of Discrimination (2013-2018) highlighted the need for a law on samesex partnerships, yet it took until February 2021 for the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights and Social Dialogue to initiate a draft. Despite the established consensus of the CSOs and the executive government, the further adoption of the law was stopped.
