Bosnia and Herzegovina–Serbia relations
Ljubisa Vasiljevic, a wartime Serb paramilitary fighter who was one of five defendants in the Strpci trial at Belgrade Higher Court, has died.
Belgrade Higher Court told BIRN that Vasiljevic died on July 6 and that "due to that fact, the court adopted a decision to suspend the proceedings [against him] on August 16, 2021".
Dzaferovic believes that Serbia has no rights when it comes to the appointment of the High Representative in Bosnia-Herzegovina and that the only obligation that Serbia has under the Dayton Agreement is to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Bosnia-Herzegovina by "not taking any action that would violate those values of BiH in any way".
As previously reported from his cabinet, Vucic will attend the opening of the Komercijalna Banka branch in Drvar, visit the Health Center and attend the opening of the Jumko factory.
Serbian government has allocated € 32 million for various projects over the last two years, with the aim to help the Serb population in Republika Srpska.
The first year of the trial in Belgrade for the abduction and killing of 20 passengers from a train at Strpci station in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war in 1993 has heard testimony from relatives of the victims, other passengers, policemen, Bosnian Serb Army soldiers and the defendants themselves, as a fuller picture of the crime more than 26 years ago began to emerge.
