Seminar on The relationship between the right to a fair trial, the right to respect for private life and freedom of expression
Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, 10th and 11th May 2017

 

 On the 10th and 11th of May 2017 the AIRE Centre, the Judicial Training Centre of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Judicial Training Centre of Republika Srpska, with support of the British Embassy in Sarajevo, organised a seminar in Hotel Holiday, Sarajevo.

The event was part of AIRE Centre’s three-year project ‘Strengthening the Judiciary of Bosnia and Herzegovina for EU Integration’. The topic of this seminar was ‘The relationship between the right to a fair trial, the right to respect for private life and freedom of expression’ and key problems in relation to interference with these rights in BiH law and practice. The aim of the seminar was to bring together legal professionals in BiH to meet and discuss the reforms necessary to tackle the above issues and also to close the gap between theory and practice, thus assisting BiH in its path to European integration. Over 40 participants, including 20 judges and prosecutors from throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina (BIH) and 16 advisors from the Court of BIH and the Constitutional Court of BIH, attended.

The event was opened by Ms Biljana Braithwaite, Manager for the Rule of Law Programme for the Western Balkans at the AIRE Centre, and included participations from inter alia Radoslav Marjanovic, assistant director for the Centre for education of judges and prosecutors of Federation of BiH; Bert Maan, ret. judge Amsterdam Court of Appeal; Elma Veledar Arifagic, legal expert; Sevima Sali-Terzić, Senior Legal Advisor, Constitutional Court of BiH; Monika Mijić, Member of the High Prosecutorial Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Ljiljana Mijovic, Professor, Faculty of Law, Banja Luka.
