He threatened sanctions if that was not done. The Republika Srpska again reacted violently to Inzko’s statements. The message is unanimous – the time for conditioning and using the Bonn powers is long gone.
If the recognitions are not taken away, there will be consequences. If the law is not passed, it will be imposed. These are the two basic messages that Inzko sent to the officials of the Republika Srpska.
Such statements do not contribute to positive solutions in BiH, and the Parliament of Srpska will, if necessary, take a stand and respond to that, said the President of the National Assembly, Nedeljko Čubrilović.
– The expectations and wishes of some politicians in BiH from the ranks of only one people, whose spokesman seems to be the High Representative, may be mere wishes, but not the obligation of the highest legislative body in the Republika Srpska – said Cubrilovic.
Representatives of the most important ruling and opposition parties, SNSD and SDS, also agree that such statements and actions of the High Representative have no basis in international law and are not in accordance with the mandate assigned to him.
The head of the Club of SNSD MPs in the National Assembly of the Republika Srpska, Igor Žunić, said that the High Representative, before making any decision, should read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, on which the entire modern world is based, especially its Articles 19 and 30, which determine that no one has the right to impose an opinion.
– That’s clear to Inzko, too. The National Assembly of the Republika Srpska has the right to make decisions as it wishes, democratically, by a majority vote, and it is the people of the Republika Srpska. The National Assembly will make decisions the way the people of Srpska want, because the deputies are the people of Srpska – Žunić emphasized.
Davor Sesic, SDS MP in the Republika Srpska National Assembly, says that “instead of protecting the Dayton Agreement, which guarantees the Republika Srpska, which has its own National Assembly that decides independently and passes laws, Inzko is threatening to reduce himself to a politician and not to deals with the improvement of life and work of people in Srpska and BiH “.
Experts also agree with such views. Thus, the professor of the Faculty of Law in Palam, Radomir Lukić, says that Inzko has no legal or moral rights to impose such a law unless he wants to accuse Serbs of all crimes during the last war in BiH.
While Inzko is threatening Republika Srpska officials, the head of the EU Delegation to BiH, Johan Satler from Banja Luka, said today that the OHR’s presence is incompatible with BiH’s membership in the Union, and that a gradual reduction of that presence should be sought. Satler told reporters that the latest announcements of Germany’s interest in the situation in BiH are positive because they show the strong engagement of that country as one of the main EU members.
Valentin Inzko’s latest initiatives are most likely just an attempt to be remembered for some of his decisions towards the end of his term, which could cause political and many other problems within BiH, is the unanimous message from Republika Srpska.
