Episode 2

One of the many charges faced by Radovan Karadžić at The Hague is that of organising the rape of 20,000 Bosnian Muslim women.

This programme tells the story of two professional women – a lawyer and a judge – who were kept for months in Omarska camp along with 3,500 mainly Muslim men.

They were raped and beaten by their Serb guards.

One of them has now returned to her home town, to find it ethnically cleansed of Muslims like herself.

Not only has she come face to face with her tormentors, she has to endure history being rewritten in front of her.

Both women used their legal skills and contacts to take international action against their guards.

But many other women are forced to turn detective, and gather their own evidence to bring their rapists to book.
