The Hague, 10 November 2021: The Commissioners and staff of the International Commission on Missing Persons have expressed their condolences to the Association of Women of Srebrenica following the death of the Association’s President, Hajra Catic.
“Hajra was a fighter. She courageously sought justice for Srebrenica genocide survivors and for all families of the missing. Sadly, her son Nino, a journalist, was never found. We honor her and other survivors and will continue to make every effort to find the remaining victims”, ICMP Director General Kathryne Bomberger said.
Since 2001, when it introduced mass DNA matching, ICMP has helped to identify around 7,000 of the approximately 8,000 genocide victims and is closely working with BIH authorities to account for those who remain missing.
