Tarik Sadovic: “Several Extremist Groups Active in BiH
Dnevni list, Dec 6, pg 2 - Tarik Sadovic, BiH Minister of Security stated that “there are positively certain extremist groups in BiH, including members of the Selefi order, which might be tempted to think that they could perhaps resolve a certain problem in BiH or the world by committing a terrorist attack.” In his words, BiH intelligence agencies are making assessments as to the seriousness of threats of each of these groups and conduct their surveillance accordingly. He stressed that he had always personally insisted that “relevant entity and state police ministries and intelligence agencies closely watch and keep such groups under control so as to thwart any possible terrorist acts. But to accuse in advance and without any strong evidence all those who differ by their looks or the way in which they practice religion would be a risky job. The fight against terrorism must be waged with full observance of human rights and basic freedoms.” Sadovic concluded that the security situation in BiH is satisfactory, “albeit a bit disrupted” due to the recent terrorist attack in Vitez and the liquidation of the Croatian journalist Ivo Pukanic in Zagreb, whose presumed killer is believed to be hiding in the RS.

Although it cannot be confirmed with certainty that the bombers arrived in a car, off-record information says that a few days prior to the bombing, two men were observed sitting in an Audi 80 in front of Hayat’s building and then drive away.

Abu Hamza’s Fetva Is an Obligation for All BiH Wahhabi!?
Oslobodjenje, Dec 6, pg 8 -As expected, the BiH Court denied the appeal of Imad al-Husin, aka Abu Hamza, against the Decision of the BiH Department for Alien Affairs refusing Abu Hamza’s temporary residence in BiH. The BiH Court based its decision on the reports of SIPA and the Zenica Cantonal Ministry of Internal Affairs and the opinion of the Department for Alien Affairs, according to which Abu Hamza poses “a potential threat to national security.” It surfaced from the reports that Abu Hamza, a Syrian national, who arrived in BiH during war and was a member of the Mujahedin community in Bocinja until he moved to Sarajevo in 2006, often lectured in the mosque in Sokolovic-Kolinija (a Sarajevo suburb) about authentic Islam (Wahhabism) and that, as an unofficial leader of the Mujahedin in BiH, he has the power to issue a Fetva (religious decree) that all Wahhabi followers in BiH are obliged to observe. Hamza was also assessed as a potential threat to public security and order due to the fact that he had attempted to purchase ammunition in a weapon store in the Sarajevo suburb of Stup although, as a foreign national, he had no such right.
 
Dragan Covic: “Prud Agreement is an Excellent Thing for BiH
Nezavisne Novine, Dec 6, pg 3 -At the session of the HDZ BiH Presidency, the party leader Dragan Covic stated that “the Prud agreement is an excellent thing both for BiH and BiH Croats and it has an absolute support of both BiH’s public and the IC officials. We must now translate the conclusions of this agreement into concrete steps. In that sense, immediately after Eid holidays next week, the House of Representatives will debate the draft law on state property.” He underlined that the debate would be “a test for the six ruling parties that will show who of us are truly willing to support the agreement.” Covic also announced that a reshuffle of the BiH CoM can be expected before the New Year, while that of the FBiH Government “will require more time because of the dismissal of certain officials and appointment of their successors.” He warned that “it would be dangerous to carry over all this year’s unresolved issues of the state and entity executive authorities into the next year.”
Also reported by: Oslobodjenje (p. 3), Dnevni list (pg 3)
 
Conditional Support to the Prud Agreement
Dnevni List, Dec 7, pg 3 - The HDZ 1990 Vice-President Martin Raguz stated that the Party Presidency decided not to support a population census before BiH’s constitution was amended. The Presidency holds that the results of a census should not be taken as the basis for the formation of government until BiH’s Constitution is changed. However, as for other draft laws arising from the Prud agreement, “all options are open and if certain requirements are met, our delegates will back up the adoption of the said draft laws in the Parliament.” However, the HDZ 1990 remains reserved towards the part of the Prud agreement on BiH’s Constitution because it “doesn’t say anything substantial on the issue.” “The idea to change the constitution by means of amendments is absolutely unacceptable because the depth of the crisis in BiH requires a radical change of the constitution, that is, it calls for an international conference.”
 
Nikola Spiric: “International Judges in BiH Lose Credibility
Vecernji List, Dec 7, pg -In his address before the UN Security Council on the political situation in BiH, the BiH CoM Chair Nikola Spiric appraised that a constant postponement of the OHR’s transition into the EUSR threatens to undermine the credibility of the IC in BiH and the trust of the local population in the adopted reforms, annulling the effects of the already shaken reform of the BiH judicial system. He disagreed with the opinion that international judges were the ones who had given a credibility to the judicial reform, in particular with regards to organized crime processing, since “we know for a fact that almost none of the indictments for organized crime have resulted in final and valid convictions, as was the case with the trials of Sarovic, Covic, Fazlic and many others.” He expressed gratitude to the IC for everything it had so far done in BiH, stressing that its future assistance should consist of providing useful services and advice, but the IC representatives shouldn’t be empowered to make decisions in BiH’s institutions and at the same time enjoy diplomatic immunity that protects them from accountability for their bad decisions. “The stability of the RS should not be seen as the cause of the instability of BiH,” said Spiric, citing “a high US official” who had said that “the RS is a part of BiH and it’s important that the RS and the FBiH are both equally respected.”
Also reported by: Nezavisne Novine (pg 3); Dnevni Avaz (pg 2) - brings Spiric’s statement that “according to all parameters, including assessments of international financial institutions, the RS represents a more stable entity. Therefore, the RS can be a motor of BiH’s development and not, as maliciously imputed, ‘a threat to BiH’.” He appraised that the Prud agreement “represents a solid basis for the fulfillment of the remaining conditions and goals set up by the Peace Implementation Council that should eventually lay grounds for the transition of the OHR into the EUSR.”
Oslobodjenje reports that in the ensuing debate of the UNSC member states, the French representative said his country was “concerned with the political atmosphere in BiH”, and called “on all sides to quit with the activities and rhetoric that deny the existence of the entities or the state of BiH.” The US representative Rosemary DiCarlo expressed full support to the OHR’s mandate in the fulfillment of the conditions and goals set by the PIC and strongly discouraged sides in BiH to use “the rhetoric or actions that undermine the DPA”. Neven Jurica, Ambassador of Croatia, the country that presides over the UNSC in December, expressed “deep concerns due to the situation in BiH” which he described as ”far from stabile.” He assessed that BiH’s stability depended on the equality of all three constituent peoples and that “the voice of BiH Croats must be heard, it must be taken into account in view of their ethnic, civil and constitutional equality.”
 
Raffi Gregorian: “No Need for Conflicts
Dnevni List, Dec 6, pg 4 -The PDHR and Brcko Supervisor Raffi Gregorian noted that “there is no need for a conflict between the RS and the IC.” Commenting on the “tense relations” between him and Milorad Dodik, Gregorian said that the criminal report filed against him “was only an attempt to divert the attention from the request for the delivery of specific documents to the BiH Prosecutor’s Office.” “This all could have been resolved by filing an appeal against the request of the judge, rather than filing criminal reports against the judge himself,” said Gregorian. He reminded that the non-adoption of the constitutional amendments to the status of Brcko is the reason why this district was still under the IC supervision. He also reminded that Dodik’s SNSD requested that the adoption of the amendments be postponed, adding that “if Milorad Dodik really wants me to leave BiH as soon as possible, the best way to make this happen is to have his SNSD adopt these two amendments.”

BiH Court Rejects the Appeal of the RS Government
Dnevni Avaz, Dec 7/8, pg 8 -Dzerard Selman, RS Minister of Justice confirmed that the BiH Court had rejected as ungrounded the appeal of the RS Government against the court’s decision on the seizure of the documents on the construction of the RS’s new government’s building. In Selman’s opinion, “it is surprising that it took the BiH Court only one day to reach a decision to reject the appeal.”
Also reported by: Dnevni List (pg 2); Nezavisne Novine - quick ruling of the BiH Court in this particular case has only further strengthened Selman’s suspicion that BiH’s judiciary is not entirely free from political interference.
 
RS Government’s Move Legitimate
Dnevni List, Dec 6, pg 4 - Milorad Ivosevic, Judge of the RS Constitutional Court, stated for the RTRS that the RS Government’s decision to file criminal reports against a number of persons was “legitimate.” He clarified that “the criminal reports were filed by a competent body against a number of persons and therefore I think that there is no need for a public outcry in the sense that this decision is illegitimate.” In his words, “competent judicial bodies will establish the facts and appraise the evidence from the criminal report, and hopefully reach an appropriate decision in this case.”
 
EU Has No More Patience for BiH
Nezavisne Novine, Dec 6, pg 4 - At the roundtable in Sarajevo on Sunday, 7 December, the Dutch Ambassador to BiH, Karel Foskuler, stated that the EU member states were losing their patience with regards to the slow implementation of the process of reforms in BiH and other countries in the region. “The EU patience will soon be lost, and everybody in the West Balkan must realize this fact as soon as possible and start making large steps towards full implementation of the reforms,” said Foskuler. He also pointed out the fact that BiH was very far from the status of candidate country for accession to the EU.
Also reported by: Glas Srpske (pg 2)
 
EU Worried About Political Situation in BiH
Nezavisne Novine, Dec 8, pg 2 - At its session scheduled to take place on Monday, 8 December, the heads of the ministries of foreign affairs of the EU member states will express “their concern with the current political situation in BiH.” The draft document of the session conclusions will read that the EU commends the fact that BiH has signed the SAA, but that the EU also expresses great concern with regards to the current political situation in BiH, and especially the concern with regards to the deadlock in the process of reforms. The EU ministers will call on the BiH leaders to assume their part of responsibility for implementation of the reforms in the country. They will also commend the agreement of three BiH leaders recently reached at their meeting in Prud/Odzak, and call on all BiH leaders to support the agreement and work on its implementation.
FBiH, Dnevni List
BiH Croats Demand Introduction of Veto in FBiH Parliament
Dnevni List, Dec 8, pg 3 - Representatives of the HDZ 1990 in the FBiH Parliament will propose amendments to the FBiH Law on Entity Government, aimed to introduce veto in the work of the FBiH Government. The President of the FBiH House of House of Peoples, Stjepan Kresic, stated that BiH Croats could no longer accept the functioning of the FBiH Government based on outvoting of Croat ministers in the decision-making process. “Mechanism of using ‘reasonable veto’ would ensure BiH Croat ministers to have influence and impact on the decisions made by the FBiH Government,” said Peric.
