"Safe house" project report - Seventh report

There are a few positive developments since our last report but unfortunately, the need for our work continues if not intensifies.

Police raid on student protest in Belgrade

Report from the Ad Hoc Coalition for the Women's Political Rights

Dear friends,

Yesterday it was 9th of November, in some places also known as the International Day Against Fascism and Anti-Semitism. The Serbian parliament had a session in which the opposition parties submitted a demand for new elections. Therefore, for that day Belgrade students organisations, under the title "Protest" (about 8 organizations), announced the protest march at 1 pm, while the oppositional political parties gathered in "Alliance for Changes" announced their protest at 3 pm.

"Safe house" project report - sixth report

On Thursday, the 14th of October, the "Safe House" project with the help of American Friends Service Committee organized a big meeting and dinner for more than thirty deserters and draft evaders with whom we have close contact in Budapest. It was a short break from daily desperation, disillusionment that they find themselves in Hungary without possibility to get refugee status and accompanied aid and right to work or possibility to leave for a third country.

Trial of Flora Brovina

Dear friends,

In previous e-mails we sent you information about Flora Brovina, a pediatrician, founder and president of the Alliance of Albanian Women of Kosovo. She was arrested by Serbian police on 20th of April 1999 and held in Kosovo's Lipljan prison; on 10th of June, she and hundred of others prisoners were transferred to prisons inside Serbia.

On 11th of November started her trial process in Nis, this was a farce and in order to find material evidences (because they hadn't any) the prosecutor postponed the trial for the 25th of November.

"Safe house" project report on perspectives of the Amnesty law in Yugoslavia

(This report is compiled of excerpts from talks that Bojan Toncic, a journalist of Belgrade daily "Danas" conducted with various experts and concerned persons in Belgrade.)

Yugoslav public was recently shocked with the information that father of the soldier who died in the war, killed the man who brought to his son a draft call. That is how the duty of people who were delivering draft calls during the war, with more or less responsibility, got another dimension.

Report on the activities of the "Safe House" project


The "Safe House" project actively took part in the preparation of Amnesty International's campaign to draw world's attention to the problems of hundreds and thousands of deserters and draft evaders from Serbia and Montenegro who are either imprisoned or in exile, fearing extremely harsh penalties if they return. The biggest number of them is to be found in Hungary. The vast majority of those has no status, no help or understanding from anywhere. In order to fully evaluate their situation a visit was organized to two biggest refugee camps in Hungary.

This is a preliminary report compiled on the facts gathered at the "Safe house" project. Further reports and comments will be distributed upon collection of more data. Therefore, we would appreciate any contribution in this direction.

Flora Brovina

We ask that the world give special attention to fellow activist, Dr. Flora Brovina, who has been taken from Kosovo to the hospital prison in Pozarevac. She is in a very bad state of health. Contact to a lawyer has been forbidden.

Arrested on 22 April 1999, she was detained in the prison of Lipljan, then the hospital of Pristina. She has not been legally charged and no reason is known for this imprisonment.

Dr. Brovina was one of the many Albanian political prisoners who were transferred from Kosovo to Serbia by withdrawing Serbian troops.
