Bytyqi Brothers in new Amnesty report on Serbia’s EU accession deficiencies

The Bytyqi Brothers case is cited as an example in a new Amnesty International report.  The report, Serbia, Ending Impunity for Crimes Under International Law, offers recommendations to the European Union to address the shortcomings within Serbian prosecutorial and judicial systems that have resulted in impunity for international crimes committed during the 1990’s.  The Bytyqi case is cited on pages 9, 12, and 25-26, although many of the issues raised throughout the report are applicable to the Bytyqi case.
