Leaders of Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia meet to discuss prosecution of war crimes

Leaders of Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia meet today to discuss trilateral agreement on the prosecution of war crimes.

Heads of state of three countries are to meet today to examine a proposal of Croatian President Ivo Josipovic to reach a regional three-country agreement on the prosecution of war crimes.

Members of Bosnia’s tritpartite presidency, Bakir Izetbegovic, Zeljko Komsic and Nebojsa Radmanovic, are to host the presidents of Serbia and Croatia on Friday at Mt Jahorina to discuss this and other regional issues.

The office of Serbian President Boris Tadic has already responded positively to Croatia’s initiative, saying he was ready to “discuss the idea with President Josipovic because he is always ready to discuss good ideas”.

Bosnia’s side has responded with more reserve. The office of presidency member Zeljko Komsic on Thursday said Komsic was aware of Josipovic’s initiative but refused to comment.

Josipovic’s proposal presumes that each party to the agreement will prosecute its own citizens charged with war crimes, no matter where the crime was perpetrated and on the basis of documents submitted by each party to the agreement.
