Place of origin

AN CRTV was originally established to provide assistance for victims of torture in Former Republic of Yugoslavia (now the independent states of Serbia and Montenegro ). Almost all clients had survived the experience of torture in their countries of origin - Croatia , Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia (in Kosovo). Over 95% of clients were refugees or internally displaced persons, who came to the current place of residence during one of the many refugee influxes to Serbia : in 1991 ( Slovenia and Croatia ), 1992 (at the beginning of the war in Bosnia ), 1995 (after the Croatian army operations "Lightning" and "Storm") and in 1999 (from Kosovo and Metohija). In addition, we have a number of clients who are IDPs from Kosovo, including several individuals of non-Albanian ethnic origin who were attacked during March 2004. In the last years, we observed an increasing number of refugee men who were arrested by police in 1995 and sent to paramilitary camps, where they were tortured and then sent to the frontline.
