Finding a solution to the problem of mass claims

Belgrade, March 7, 2023.

Representatives of municipalities in the south of Serbia, burdened with mass claims (in Serbian: masovne tužbe) related to land expropriation during the earlier construction of local roads, held a meeting at the Ministry of Justice with State Secretary Livija Pavićević. Mihajlo Čolak, Program Director of the Committee for Human Rights Niš, participated in the meeting as professional support to the municipalities on behalf of the Judiciary Base South (PBJ) coalition. Mihajlo pointed out the necessity of changing the Law on Civil Procedure to prevent new mass claims, from which individual attorneys at law profit enormously to the detriment of the state budget and which essentially do not bring substantial financial satisfaction to the citizens whom the attorneys at law represent.
