MARCH 24 1997 DAY

NEWS REVIEW, REPUBLIKA SRPSKA

SARAJEVO - The president from Republika Srpska (RS) in the Presidency of B&H, Momcilo Krajisnik, received in Pale the Finnish ambassador, Time Kaponen. As president Krajisnik's spokesperson, Mirjana Kusmuk reported, the talks dealt with the work of the joint institutions of RS and the Federation of B&H (FB&H), the establishment of a Central Bank, the local elections and the current situation in the region.

SARAJEVO - RS president for social affairs, Velibor Ostojic, talked in Pale with the UNESCO representative for RS and the FB&H, Colin Kaiser, on the forming of an UNESCO national commission in the area and the repairing of the educational buildings in RS. According to president Ostojic, the talks were focused on the UNESCO mission for the offering of assistance in the repair of the educational buildings in RS.

SARAJEVO - RS minister of transportation and communications, Nedeljko Laic, talked in Pale with the World Bank representative, Enna Vazur on the reconstruction and construction of the road network in RS. 'These are the final talks before the signing of a contract on reconstruction and construction of the road network in RS', explained Laic, and added: 'The programmes amounting about $25 million are presented to the World Bank and within the next few days we are expecting an official invitation from Washington for the signing of the contract, so that at the beginning of the construction period we would start with the realisation of the project on the building of the road network in RS'.

BELGRADE - The Belgrade papers are publishing the statement made by the acting head of the Serb Democratic Party (SDS), Aleksa Buha, saying that all the misunderstandings in the state and party leadership which resulted from the signing of the Agreement on Special Parallel Relations have been overcome within the Party. The regime's papers stress that the Main Board of the SDS has cleared up the misunderstandings and that, as 'the Politika' writes, the Main Board members have reached a full agreement on the way of the functioning of all the state institutions.

DOBOJ - On the occasion of the anniversary of the release of the Serb soldiers from the Tuzla prison, the Association of the families of prisoners and missing persons from Doboj sent an appeal to the public for the release of the remaining war prisoners imprisoned in the Muslim and Croatian prisons. The Association calls the international community to undertake all measures so to free Serb soldiers from Vozuca, who were registered by the ICRC, from captivity.

KOTOR VAROS - The volatile intrusions of the armed Muslims into the boundary parts of RS represent an open aggression on the territory of the internationally recognised state, warned the head of the branch of the National Party in Kotor Varos, Radenko Perisic. While commenting on the Muslim announcements for the volatile intrusions into the border sections of the Municipality of Kotor Varos, Perisic stressed that 'the carrying out of the announcements into deed could have unforeseeable consequences for peace in these areas and the further implementation of the Dayton agreement'.

BELGRADE - Belgrade's attorney, Igor Pantelic, denied The Hague Tribunal main prosecutor, Louise Arbour's claim that this court has not been cooperating with the German national court in the legal proceedings against the Serbs, Nikola Jorgic and Novislav Djajic, which are in progress in Dusseldorf in Munich. 'There is the documentation which shows that just a day after Nikola Jorgic was arrested, the former Tribunal's chief prosecutor, Richard Goldstone, informed the German minister of justice, Peter Willkitzky, that the international court has already carried an investigation against Jorgic', said Pantelic in a statement for SRNA. According to Pantelic, who is one of the defence attorneys of Jorgic and Djajic, Arbour 'is at least saying untruth' when he says that The Hague Tribunal has not been cooperating with the German court in these cases.

AMSTERDAM - Is the exodus of the 200,000 of the Krajina Serbs the greatest ethnic cleansing registered in this century and why Croatia has not been punished for the bombardment of women and children in the exodus? - this is one of the questions posed by a Dutch woman, Yeni Lyhtenberg, to the US Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright. In a letter sent by the ITERNET electronic mail, Mrs. Lyhtemberg, who worked as a volunteer in two military hospitals in RS during the war, expresses her worries because 'after the signing of the Dayton agreement and the establishment of peace, tens of thousands of innocent Serb children and refugees were so easily left to their own'. She claims that, while she was working in the military hospital in Pale, in the close vicinity of the front line, she convinced herself of that during the war 'the Serb surgeons, doctors and medical staff were deprived of the needed medical help which made it difficult for them to do their human job'.
