The parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina on Tuesday had to cancel its session because MPs from Serb political parties failed to show up, thus confirming an earlier announcement that they would boycott the work of state institutions due to the imposition of a law banning the denial of war crimes. 

The decision to cancel the parliament session was confirmed by the leader of the opposition Our Party (NS), Predrag Kojović, who said that the next session of the House of Representatives would be scheduled for September.

Party leaders from Republika Srpska (RS) said they would not participate in the work of the BiH Presidency, the national parliament and the government, until High Representative Valentin Inzko withdrew legal changes making it possible to punish those denying war crimes and glorifying perpetrators.
