Serbia - OPCAT Situation
Serbia became a State Party to the OPCAT in 2006. Five years later, it designated the Ombudsperson's Office (Protector of Citizens) as NPM by a legislation amending the Law on the OPCAT ratification in July 2011.
The Protector of Citizens operates as NPM in formal cooperation with the ombudsperson's offices and with human rights associations. A specific NPM Department is performing the NPM functions.
The SPT member Aneta Stanchevska is the SPT Focal Point for Serbia.
