Over 350 persons participated in the seventh Annual International Conference of enforcement officers, as it was organised by the Serbian Chamber of Private Enforcement Officers on 21 and 22 October in Zlatibor, Serbia. The Conference was co-sponsored by the BESP (Balkan Enforcement Strengthening) project.
For two days, discussions were organised on important enforcement law related topics such as the costs of enforcement procedures and the right for compensation for enforcement activities; the enforcement procedure in crisis situations and controversial legal issues in the work of the public enforcement officers and courts. Special attention was given to the application of European standards in the enforcement procedure as a guarantee of human rights (especially the reasonable term in the enforcement procedure, the right to a fair trial and the violation of the right to property in the enforcement procedure).
In the panels participated enforcement officers from Serbia and other countries, judges from the Supreme Court of Cassation of Serbia, the Appellate Commercial courts and universities.
UIHJ was represented by its first vice-president, Jos Uitdehaag.
