Kontic and others v Ministry of Defence

Jurisdiction – Responsibility. The Administrative Court dismissed claim of the claimant widows and mother of Serbs adducted or murdered in Kosovo, following the deployment of the international military coalition (KFOR) authorised by United Nations. On the basis of Behrami v France; Saramati v France (Applications 71412/01 and 78166/01) ((2007) 22 BHRC 477), the acts and omissions alleged against the defendant Ministry of Defence were attributable to the UN, not to the United Kingdom.
