Lawyers Liesbeth Zegveld and Tomasz Kodrzycki have filed a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights on behalf of the surviving relatives of three Muslim men who were killed by the Bosnian-Serb army after the fall of the Srebrenica-enclave. The complaint is summarized as follows:

"The refusal properly to investigate, under criminal law, the involvement of Karremans c.s. in the deaths of the applicants’ family members in Srebrenica in 1995 with a view to prosecuting them for these crimes, constitutes a violation of Article 2 of the Convention (the right to life), in particular the duty duly to investigate fatal incidents by carrying out an independent and effective investigation."
