As part of the Anti-Corruption Campaign and raising public awareness about the work of the Prosecutor’s Office in the Republic of Srpska, the citizens’ association “The Path of Justice” Banja Luka is conducting public advocacy activities on the inadequate work of the Prosecutor’s Office. The third project activity is organizing promotional stands, filling out the Survey and signing a petition in 10 different cities of Republika Srpska. This is also the central activity of the project, which consists of several different sub-activities. The promotional stand in Trebinje will be organized on Saturday, August 28th, 2021, on the central square.
The individual goals of each advocacy campaign are to make citizens more aware of this important issue in order to obtain additional information on the problems of the work of the Prosecutor’s Office at the local level in direct contact with the residents of each visited municipality or city. The specific objectives of these sub-activities relate to collecting information on the work of local Prosecutor’s Offices from citizens, sharing information material designed in the first phase of the project and general collection of information on the work of the Prosecutor’s Office at the local level through direct contact with citizens.
A special sub-activity of this project phase is the contact with the local media. We plan to directly address all media outlets operating in each local community we plan to visit in order to primarily gather information related to the work of the local prosecutor’s office and to provide additional visibility to the project. Addressing the media in Trebinje on the central square is planned for Saturday, August 28th, 2021, at 13:00. An additional project sub-activity is contacting non-governmental organizations operating in the visited local community. With a public call that we will publish on our channels of visibility, we will, among other things, address non-governmental organizations in the field of human rights that operate in each local community visited. The activity is implemented within the project “Anti-Corruption Campaign and Raising Public Awareness of the Prosecutor’s Office in Republika Srpska” implemented by Citizens’ Association The Path of Justice, with the financial support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and is part of a broader project against corruption ”, implemented by the Centers for Civil Initiatives, as a leading partner.
