The complaint is summarized as follows: 

"The refusal properly to investigate, under criminal law, the involvement of Karremans c.s. in the deaths of the applicants’ family members in Srebrenica in 1995 with a view to prosecuting them for these crimes, constitutes a violation of Article 2 of the Convention (the right to life), in particular the duty duly to investigate fatal incidents by carrying out an independent and effective investigation."
