SARAJEVO, Bosnia (April 14,2008) - The Bosnian President Haris Silajdžić has met with Richard Holbrooke, one of the creators of the 1995 Dayton Peace Accords.According to the Bosnian Presidency,former U.S. diplomat congratulated Bosnia on the results achieved in police reform, stressing that there was no alternative to the country’s integration within the EU and NATO.The Bosnian President Haris Silajdžić said that Bosnia could accomplish a great deal, but that it was necessary to reach a consensus over the required reforms in order for Sarajevo to fully implement EU and NATO standards and principles.

Holbrooke also met with a member of the Bosnian Presidency, Željko Komšić and told him that the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia "RS" is "a reality".(?)

“The Dayton Accords are clear. There can be no breakaway of any of Bosnia’s parts, the country’s entities are a reality, and it’s necessary to pluck up the courage to bolster constitutional organization for Bosnia to be able to take further steps towards the EU, and quickly become a member of Euro-Atlantic integration,” Holbrooket told Komšić.

Holbrooke's argument that "the RS is a reality" is bunk. For a few years, Nazi Germany's occupation of most of Europe was a reality, also, but it was neither legal nor moral -just like the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia "RS". In connection to Nazi Germany, it has been famously said that forcing the victims of genocide to live with and accept the results of genocide is also an act of genocide. For Holbrooke to say that the genocidal fascist Serbian creature in Bosnia "RS" and Srebrenica in it, is a reality that Bosnians "should accept", is simply morally indefensible.

Holbrooke traveled to Bosnia to take part in a CNN documentary on the genocide committed by the Serbian aggressor in the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica in the summer of 1995,during the Serbian aggression against Bosnia.

In July 1995 the genocidal Serbian aggressor mass murdered up to 10,000 Bosnian civilians from Srebrenica.The Srebrenica massacre has been deemed by the UN war crimes tribunal and the International Court of Justice to have constituted genocide. Thousands of bodies of the genocide victims have been uncovered from about 60 mass graves around Srebenica.


SARAJEVO, Bosnia (April 14,2008) - The European Union Police Mission (EUPM) in Bosnia welcomed the political agreement on police reform laws reached by the Bosnian Parliament's House of Representatives.

“After a long period of political discussions, the political leaders of Bosnia have yesterday launched the first phase of what will be a process aimed at improving the capability of the country to strengthen security of its society and its citizens. As a final result, Bosnia will have a police structure fully capable to respond to all the security needs,” said Head of the EU Police Mission Brigadier General Vincenzo Coppola.

The EU Police Mission will continue with the strong focus on the issue of police coordination.

“We expect the newly created Directorate for Coordination to set the framework for better future coordination between all police agencies, which has until now been unregulated and based on individual cases of co-operation. As all professionals know, strong coordination is of the key importance for the successful fight against organised crime,” General Coppola added.

“A lot of work remains to be done. We will continue to support the police reform process by offering technical and professional expertise” General Coppola concluded.
