Comments Registered at the Secretariat on 31 October 2008. The complaint was registered on 25 August 2008. The complainant organisation pleads a violation of Article 16 of the Charter (the right of the family to social, legal and economic protection), read alone or in conjunction with Article E (non discrimination) of the Charter, on the grounds that the ethnic Serb population displaced during the war in Croatia has been subjected to discriminatory treatment as the families have not been allowed to reoccupy their former dwellings prior to the conflict, nor have they been granted financial compensation for the loss of their homes. The complaint was declared admissible by the Committe on 30 March 2009.
