Komšić: Attacks on Džaferović an attempt to discredit BiH institutions

SARAJEVO, January 14 (FENA) – Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Željko Komšić has strongly condemned the allegations made by the propagandistic Serbian media at the expense of Bosnia and Herzegovina Presidency member Šefik Džaferović.

“Džaferović is an honorable man, and the attacks by the Serbian media are nothing but unscrupulous lies. Also, these attacks are not only attacks on Džaferović himself, but rather they represent continued attempts to discredit the institution of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina and discredit the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

All those who honor and respect the state and are in politics are obliged to condemn this and call it by its real name. If that does not happen, someone else will be the target tomorrow,” Komšić said in a statement to FENA.

Member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Šefik Džaferović, said in a press statement today that the Serbian intelligence has repeatedly, through the regime media in Belgrade, primarily ‘Novosti’ and ‘Tanjug’, once again released a series of lies about him.

“This time, it is a ridiculous attempt to link me to the recently killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. In doing so, they are recycling the old, Greater Serbian propagandist stories about alleged war crimes. The content of the published texts, entirely made up of untruths, would not deserve a single letter of reaction if it were not for the message sent to me through the regime’s media in Serbia as a member of the BiH Presidency,” said Džaferović in his statement.
