Is it not immediately clear that your surviving relative was at the UN compound on the day in question? But your relative was last seen in Potočari according to reliable sources? In that case the committee asks you to prove with convincing information or witness statements that the victim was inside the fence of the UN compound in Potočari on the afternoon of 13 July 1995. According to reliable sources, was your family member last seen in the woods? If so, we will reject your request.
Important to know: You should take into account that under the Arrangement a brother or sister of a victim who has been awarded compensation, cannot receive a second compensation. Only the wife or partner, the parents and children who have a first-degree family relationship with more than one victim, can receive more than one compensation. This means: If you sign the settlement agreement as a brother or sister, you are not eligible for any other compensation. If you sign the settlement agreement as a first-degree relative, you can no longer receive compensation for your brother or sister.
