EAST SARAJEVO, July 12 /SRNA/ - Staša Košarac, head of the SNSD caucus in the House of Representatives of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Parliament, told Srna it is high time the High Representative to BiH Valentin Inzko, who supports only Bosniak political interests, left BiH and let it develop in the spirit of democracy and tolerance.


Commenting on the OHR’s stance that the High Representative was not going to attend commemorations for Serb victims until people stopped negating an alleged genocide in Srebrenica and speaking against BiH, Košarac said it was yet another confirmation that Inzko “is a spokesman of the Bosniak politics”.

He pointed out that the High Representative had a visibly one-sided approach to all problems in BiH and that he was always inclined to Bosniaks.

Košarac said Inzko should not pose any conditions as to the political views about some events from the war, and instead spread the need for a peaceful, tolerant and democratic development of BiH.

It is noticeable that the High Representative is not attending commemorations for Serbs, the people who will always commemorate the suffering of their fellow-citizens in peace and with dignity, he said.

"Our stance about it is very clear and we won’t give up on it - war crimes were also committed against Serbs too. The policy of Alija Izetbegović and the political and military top of the so-called republic of BiH had a political imperative for BiH to be a Muslim only country,” said Košarac.

Commenting on a Thursday claim by the High Representative that next year BiH would definitely get a law on negating genocide, Košarac said the High Representative had an opportunity to impose the law because of his Bonn powers, but that the laws that were imposed by other high representatives did not have any positive effects.

He noted that Republika Srpska was investing its capacities in establishing the final truth about Srebrenica and what happened there between 1992 and 1995, which is why it formed the Srebrenica Commission.

"We are witnessing various forms of forgery about events in Srebrenica and the truth is denied by certain structures gathered around the High Representative,” asserted Košarac.

The OHR said they were going to start considering their higher presence at commemorations for innocent Serb civilian casualties in Podrinje when “conditions for that are created,” meaning “when certain speakers at /some/ commemorations stop negating that genocide happened in Srebrenica, glorifying war criminals, spreading hate speech, and speaking against BiH.”

This is a part of the OHR’s reply to Srna’s question why High Representative Valentin Inzko did not attend a commemoration in Bratunac on Saturday for Serbs killed during the war in Podrinje and whether he was going to attend a commemoration in Zalazje outside Srebrenica to pay tribute to the Serb civilians and soldiers killed on July 12, 1992 in Zalazje and other Srebrenica villages, and also why Inzko differentiated between the Serb and Bosniak victims, which could be understood from his failure to appear at commemorations for Serb victims.

The OHR replied that all innocent civilian victims and their families deserved justice and respect, regardless of their religious or ethnic background, claiming they did not make any difference between innocent Bosniak, Croat or Serb victims, or their families.

"Furthermore, an OHR representative attended the religious part of the commemoration in Bratunac and will attend the commemoration in Zalazje,” reads the reply from the OHR. /end/dš
