The High Representative and EU Special Representative (HR/EUSR) for Bosnia and Herzegovina, H.E. Mr. Valentin Inzko, visited the facilities of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) and Podrinje Identification Project in Tuzla today.
Accompanied by ICMP’s Chief Operating Officer, Adam Boys, Mr. Inzko first visited PIP, which was specifically created to assist in the identification of persons missing from the 1995 fall of Srebrenica, and where mortal remains of these victims are examined and stored until final identification. Mr. Inzko saw first-hand how ICMP forensic experts conduct ante-mortem and post-mortem data comparisons, and assist domestic authorities in making a final determination of identity so that families can bury their loved ones with dignity.
