This month we mark the second anniversary of the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and our crew has a report from Kyiv about how the local population is struggling to keep morale high and about the consequences of enduring such a long period of terror.
In December, our crew visited the capital of Ukraine and some of the execution sites that have become notorious around the world after the crimes committed there by Russian forces. We’ll be talking about Ukrainians’ efforts to seek justice for war crimes, and about parallels with Bosnia and Herzegovina.
For several weeks we infiltrated a pyramid scheme that ravaged the wallets of Bosnian and Herzegovinians who believed in a dream of easy money. We preserved disappearing evidence and uncovered previously unknown details about the mastermind behind this scheme.
In the September edition of TV Justice we’ll be talking about a unique two-year investigation into the prosecution of corruption in Bosnia and Herzegovina, disciplinary actions against judges and prosecutors, as well as the openness of judicial institutions to allowing insight into their operations.
In the new edition of TV Justice we’ll be talking about crimes committed in Foca during the war, which are commemorated in August. In the spring and summer of 1992, members of the non-Serb population were held in detention facilities, raped, killed and deported. More than 600 people who went missing during that period are still being looked for, and surviving victims and people who returned to Foca after the war are struggling to overcome its legacy without the support of the authorities.
For a third year running, staff at the Srebrenica Memorial Centre have been filming stories about the lives of residents of Srebrenica before and during the war, as well as their experiences of surviving the genocide. With stories filmed over the past year included, testimonials by 500 victims have so far been permanently preserved in the Memorial Centre’s archive.
In May and June 1992, attacks on Rogatica were carried out, and local Bosniaks attempted to avoid the horrors of war by looking for safety in the woods and neighbouring villages. Those who didn’t manage to escape were either killed or detained.
At the end of this month, White Armband Day will be marked in the city of Prijedor and tributes paid to those who were killed in 1992, including 102 children. In this edition we’ll try to find out how their parents in the city feel today, what revives their traumas and whether post-war returnees are now leaving the town because of what happened in the past, or for other reasons.
In this April edition, we’ll be talking about what and how much children learn in schools about the conflicts of the 1990s. We’ll be focusing on a story about a two-year effort to improve teaching of the facts related to the Bosnian war.
