Katarina Golubović, the president of the Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights (YUCOM), was among the key participants at the UPR Pre-Session events in Geneva this week. The event brought together human rights advocates and representatives of civil society organizations from Serbia to create a comprehensive report that evaluates the country’s progress in fulfilling the recommendations related to human rights. Mrs. Golubović played an instrumental role in this process, using the platform to highlight two critical issues that require urgent attention. Firstly, she emphasized the pressing need to strengthen judicial efficiency, which plays a fundamental role in protecting human rights and ensuring justice for all. Secondly, Mrs. Golubović drew attention to the significant challenges that human rights defenders in Serbia face every day, including threats, intimidation, and violence.
Her powerful words aimed to raise awareness about the importance of protecting human rights and promoting access to justice in Serbia, and her passionate advocacy for these issues served as a powerful reminder of the work that still needs to be done to create a more just and better society.
