Civil society organizations that provide support to women and children, including the Autonomous Women's Center, sent an Open Letter to the President of the Council for Creating a Stimulating Environment for the Development of Civil Society and members of citizens' associations and civil society organizations within, on the occasion of the BIRN report on the division public funds to phantom organizations for non-existent activities.
The Autonomous Women's Center was granted, on October 9, 2023, by the Ministry of Labor, Employment, Veterans and Social Affairs the renewal of the permanent license for the provision of services through the SOS telephone for women who have experienced violence!
The Senior Public Prosecutor of the Special Department for Prevention of Corruption of the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Niš has again refused to act on the criminal charges filed by the Autonomous Women's Center against the judges and prosecutors in Pirot, stating that it may possibly be an offense under Art. 360 of the CC, but not about the part from Art. 361 CC.
The Senior Public Prosecutor of the Special Department for Prevention of Corruption of the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Niš refused to act on the criminal charges filed by the AWC against judges and prosecutors in Pirot, and forwarded them to the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Pirot. Such a decision of the Senior Public Prosecutor would not have been contested if the AWC had not filed criminal charges due to the suspicion that the judges and prosecutors from Pirot had committed a criminal offense under Art. 361 CC, and not from Art. 360 of the CC, as stated in the prosecutor's letter.
