Homeland War Sexual Violence Victims to Receive 100k

parliament-2More than twenty years after the end of the Homeland War, victims of sexual violence will finally be compensated in Croatia after the government sent the final draft law on the rights of victims of sexual violence in the Homeland War to parliament on Thursday…

According to the proposed draft law, all sexual violence victims with recognised status will receive a one-off payment of 100,000 kuna (13,000 euros), or 150,000 kuna (20,000 euros) for victims that fell pregnant as a result of sexual violence, or for victims that were minors. All victims will also receive monthly compensation of 2,500 kuna (350 euros) for the rest of their lives, as well as the right to compulsory and supplementary health insurance.

Only victims with Croatian citizenship can claim under the new law, which is set to come into effect next month.
