The president of Republika Srpska said on Saturday that politicians in Sarajevo and the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina continually conduct some investigations into him and speculate against him, asserting that he does not find them interesting. “All of my work in the past has been very transparent and as far as I’m concerned – I’m here,” said Milorad Dodik commenting on a possible investigation by the Prosecutor’s Office into his affairs.
Dodik told reporters that he was not informed about it and he did not even try to learn anything with respect to that because they he did not find them interesting.
“Two years ago, the same Prosecutor’s Office gave up on an investigation regarding the Government building, motorways and all those lies for which they could have had and said they didn’t have any evidence,” recalled Dodik.
During a ceremony of opening an elementary school in Crkvina near Samac, whose construction was sponsored by the Serbian Government with BAM1 million, Dodik said that Republika Srpska loves and supports Serbia and does not deny the Bosnia and Herzegovina that is defined by the Dayton Peace Agreement and the State Constitution.
“We challenge the BiH that was imposed by the high representative. We cannot such a Bosnia and Herzegovina and will not do so. It will either be restored to what the BiH Constitution says or it will always be problematic,” said the president.
Dodik noted that the BiH Court and Prosecutor’s Office, the institutions that were imposed by the high representative, apprehended more than 400 Serbs in the past 12 months alone.
The majority of the arrested were not even included in investigation procedures, said Dodik and emphasised that the Court and Prosecutor’s Office needed to redefine their job and their work.
“We are not adventurists. This is not the Crimea. We want stable relations in BiH, but BiH must acknowledge Republika Srpska, no more and no less than what is stipulated by the Dayton Agreement and the Constitution,” said Dodik.
