Verdicts and indictments for war crimes and other grave offences should be made public so people can learn the truth about past atrocities, Bosnia's top judicial body said.
BELGRADE - The campaign ended for the early parliamentary elections that will be held in Serbia on Sunday, March 16, and election silence will be in force until the close of polls at 8 p.m. the same day.
In these polls, 6,767, 324 citizens will be eligible to vote and elect 250 MPs for the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia.
The House of Representatives, one of two chambers in Bosnia's parliament, dismissed Radoncic as Security Minister on the request of the Party of Democratic Action, SDA, which said he did not do all he could have done to prevent violence in protests in February.
Police in Banja Luka were on the hunt Thursday for Zeljko Stevanovic, 50, who is suspected of throwing a hand grenade into a city bus on Thursday morning, killing the driver.
Bozo Popic, 55, died from injuries received in the bomb attack on the public bus he was driving.
EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said in Sarajevo on March 12 that the focus now should be on economic reforms, welfare and the judiciary - not on constitutional change.
