Bosnia Herzegovina

    Nearly 2,000 Bosnian Muslims and Croats detained in camps during the 1992-95 war submitted compensation claims May 23 against the Serb Republic totaling almost USD 50 million. The claims seek USD 400 in damages per day of detention, said Murat Tahirovic, head of an association of camp inmates. Separately, the association of Bosnian Serb wartime camp inmates said it was preparing to file 7,000 compensation claims against the Muslim-Croat federation for detentions in the Muslim- and Croat-run camps.
