Three years after the attack on the Merlinka festival which was held in 2014, an indictment was made against two identified attackers. The court confirmed the indictment on May 12, 2017, and in February 2018, a conviction was issued against one of the attackers by which the attacker is convicted for six months sentence in prison, and the sentence will not be executed if the accused does not commit a new criminal offense within two years work.
Sarajevo Open Centre has been working on strengthening LGBTIQ people in BiH for years, providing legal and psychosocial support, as well as organizing a large number of workshops, seminars, training and socializing events.
