Verica Barac, who died earlier this month at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer, was Serbia's most prominent anti-corruption activist and headed the country's Anti-Corruption Council. Barac came to the council's helm in 2003, as a new pro-Western government began to recover from years of wars and international sanctions suffered during Slobodan Milosevic's decade-long rule. She exposed numerous corruption scandals, such as dubious privatisation deals made during the country's transition to a market economy.
