Practice Relating to Rule 150. Reparation
In its views and comments on the 1997 Draft Basic Principles and Guidelines on the Right to Reparation for Victims of [Gross] Violations of Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law, as they were then called, Croatia stated:
It is clear that the right to claim reparation for violations of human rights and international humanitarian law should be given primarily to the direct victim; in cases where the direct victim is unable to claim or precluded from claiming reparation, such right should be enjoyed by the descendants of the direct victim, and subsidiarily to the persons closely connected with the direct victim.
