SARAJEVO – Serbs want to expel foreign judges

Representatives of BiH’s Serb-majority entity, Republika Srpska, will suspend their work in the country’s state institutions until foreign judges are expelled from the country’s Constitutional Court following a decision by the Constitutional Court determining that public land law in that entity was – unconstitutional and that BiH, not entities are the owner of the land. 

“Either political leaders will come to a new agreement on what the Constitutional Court should look like or Bosnia will be no more”, Serb leader Milorad Dodik threatened. 

While the US embassy in BiH urged all parties to respect the decisions of the Constitutional Court, the EU did not react.

The Court is composed of nine judges – two Bosniaks, two Serbs, two Croats and three foreign judges. Dodik has been accusing foreign judges of agreeing with the Bosniak judges too often. (Željko Trkanjec | EURACTIV.hr)
