NEWS REVIEW, REPUBLIKA SRPSKA

BANJA LUKA - The delegates of the National Assembly of Republika Srpska /RS/ at the yesterday's continuation of the sixth session did not accept the Draft Law on ceasing effectiveness of the Law on using the abandoned property, but they have decided to let the legislative commission give its opinion about it before the today's session of the parliament. In the very tempestuous and long lasting discussion the majority of Serbian delegates made a remark that by adopting such draft of law around 400,000 refugees who are now using abandoned property of Bosniaks and Croats would remain without adequate accommodation. Explaining the Draft Law on ceasing validity of the Law on abandoned property the assistant minister for Refugees and displaced persons Petko Obucina noted that it is comprised within the Constitution of RS and called upon the Annex 7 of the Dayton Agreement, by which is defined that RS, FB&H and B&H in cooperation with the international organisations will provide return of refugees and their property. The proposal of the delegate clubs of SDS and radicals to return the Law on ceasing validity of the Law on abandoned property to RS Government for amendments or to be adopted in the form of draft proposal and given at the 45 days public discussion was not adopted - about it will discuss the legislative legal commission of the RS Assembly.

ZAGREB - OSCE and UNHCR are not content by the new Croatian plan of return of Serbian refugees, assessing that its content could force refugees to give up from return to their homes - was announced yesterday from the seat of these organisations. In the joint announcement was noted that this document "comprises the regulations which could have negative impact on the decision of eventual returnees" and that it is based on the stances which are "contrary to the principles agreed with the international community".

NEWS REVIEW, REPUBLIKA SRPSKA

BANJA LUKA - The elections represent new opportunity for the people of Republika Srpska /RS/ to change and improve in legal way the life in Republic, so should be understood the next September's parliamentary elections - assessed the president of Republic Biljana Plavsic at the press conference in Banja Luka. The president of RS thinks that for the economic recovery of RS is necessary a certain longer time period, because one year is too little to see concrete results of one political structure. That is another reason why she would give priority to more frequent elections as it gives an opportunity to the people to change and do something in its favour. Reviewing the statement of co-presiding in Council of Ministers Haris Silajdzic that B&H is ready to give its territory to NATO for base for its actions against Serbia in Kosmet, the president of RS stressed that he cannot speak in the name of both entities of Dayton B&H.

BANJA LUKA - The National Assembly of RS has adopted at the beginning of the continuation of the Sixth session with 48 votes "for" the report of the Legislative -legal commission, by which the Draft Law about ceasing the validity of the Law on using the abandoned property did not get the support of delegates so it is returned to the proposer, along with the recommendation to make another text of the draft. In the report of the Legislative-legal commission, submitted by the member of the commission Slobodan Cvijetic, it is recommended to the Government of RS to take into account yesterday's discussion proposals and suggestions. The delegates of the National Assembly of RS has decided, with 46 voter for, to return the Draft Law on amendments and supplements of the Law on housing relations to the proposer the RS Government because, as concluded, being closely connected to the Law on using the abandoned property, this draft law should also be revised. The Serbian radical Slobodan Cvijetic has proposed, because of the structural objections and connection with the Law on using the abandoned property this draft should be returned to the proposer, and that both laws in the form of draft the Government should prepare for the discussion in the package. At the requirement of Nenad BAstinac from the Party of Independent Social- democrats, who has expressed the doubt in the regularity of voting about the Proposal of the Law about amendments of the Law on regular courts, the people's delegates in the repeated individual voting have confirmed their disagreement with the proposal of this law.
