Human Rights Concerns

In 2013, discrimination and homophobia remained major human rights concerns in Serbia. In Belgrade more than 1,000 Roma were forcibly evicted over the past two years. The Belgrade Pride was again banned in October. In Kosovo, impunity continued for crimes under international law perpetrated by the Kosova Liberation Army (KLA). Violence in the north, inter-ethnic attacks and discrimination against minorities also continued. On a positive note, however, prosecutions of alleged war criminals Ratko Mladić and Goran Hadžić began at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Hague.
