HoR of FBiH Parliaments requests the HR to exercise the Bonn powers

SARAJEVO, October 27 (FENA) – At today’s session, the House of Representatives of the Parliament of the Federation of BiH adopted the conclusions of the Security Committee regarding the current political situation.

Given that the recent activities of the Republika Srpska political representatives have called into question both peace and stability in BiH, the House of Representatives of the FBiH Parliament, in accordance with the Dayton Peace Agreement, its Annex X and the UN Security Council Resolution 1144, asks the High Representative Christian Schmidt to use the Bonn powers available to him, in order to ensure peace, stability and the smooth functioning of the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“We expect the High Representative in BiH to directly remove and annul all decisions made which, as the supreme interpreter of the Dayton Peace Agreement, and thus the BiH Constitution, he finds to be in conflict with the Constitution and the laws in force in our country,” said President of the Security Committee Damir Mašić.

The second conclusion is that the House of Representatives of the FBiH Parliament calls on EUFOR and NATO forces to act in accordance with United Nations Resolution 1575 from 2004, in case of endangering the security of BiH citizens caused by the announced unconstitutional actions of Republika Srpska officials and institutions.

“Also, the conclusion was adopted that in accordance with the current Criminal Code of BiH, the House of Representatives of the FBiH Parliament requires concrete action by the Prosecutor’s Office of BiH, which has the obligation and responsibility to act in this and similar situations. The citizens of BiH expect from the judicial institutions in BiH more efficient and effective processing of all criminal acts, especially those that endanger the existing constitutional order in our country,” Mašić added.
