Reparation rights

Newspost

 
December 2, 2019

In August 2019, the UN Committee against Torture had ordered the Bosnian government to pay compensation to a Muslim rape victim, after the soldier who was convicted of rape could not pay the compensation he was ordered to pay. The government was also ordered to create a national war crimes reparation scheme, so other victims could also apply for compensation rather than pursue expensive and lengthy proceedings.

This case has set a precedent for other rape victims to get compensation. Pakistan can also use this example against Indian soldiers in Kashmir and also Myanmar soldiers. Videos, victim testimonies and third party testimonies are available on record for the women of Kashmir and Burma.
