APRIL 2 1997 DAY


BEOGRAD - The president of Republika Srpska (RS) Biljana Plavsic, stated that she "sees nothing wrong, for this time being, in the arrival of Brcko supervisor, Robert Farrant by the end of this week". In an interview for the Belgrade weekly "Blitz", president Plavsic expressed her conviction that the international police would not act against the law and would equally treat all residents in the territory. "If do the job well, we would have the city of Brcko organised as a model of a city where law is observed, and where results of economic investment and prosperity are evident", stated president Plavsic, and repeated that "RS received guarantees that its residents would not be forced to move from the territory".

BIJELJINA - The head of the RS Army General Staff, general Pero Colic, assessed that the Army reorganisation has been completed successfully. "Combat readiness of Serb Army units is sufficiently high for the defence of RS", stated general Colic for "Semberija news".

SARAJEVO - The RS minister for refugees and displaced persons Ljubisa Vladusic, reached an agreement with Brigit Quist- Sorensen, the representative of the Danish humanitarian agency "Red Barnet", about aid programme for mothers and children living in RS collective centres. According to the Ministry, the aid is consisted of organisation of pre- school children's education workshop.

SARAJEVO - The Ministry of energy and industry, Milorad Skoko, warned high representative's assistant for economic sector, of the unqeual treatment of RS and the Federation of B-H. According to the latest proposal of the World Bank, the reconstruction of B-H electroenergy sector would require 270 million dollars, out of which only 70 million was reserved for RS.

SARAJEVO - IPTF Aleksander Ivanko condemned the behaviour of local authority in Drvar, which representatives in private contacts with the international police confirmed that they would not allow the Serbs to return to the city. "Croat authorities threaten the Serbs that more that 24 hours spent in the city would not be allowed, and said they would not give permission for the opening of the Banjaluka-Drvar bus line", stated Ivanko at a press conference in Pale, while adding that "the area of Drvar one of the most troubling areas in respect to return of refugees".

HAMBURG - The international observers believe that the refugees in B-H should settle in their nationally dominant areas, because this would finish the ethnic division between the Serbs, Croats and Muslims, claims the German paper "Welt am Sontag". According to the paper, the prevailing opinion among foreign observers and diplomats that the initialled division between the Muslims, Serbs and Croats would be finally "cemented".

ROME - Muslim authorities in Sarajevo do not allow the Serbs and Croats the return to their repaired apartments, which represent a violation of once multi-ethnic status of this city, writes the Italian press. The Italian daily papers condemned discriminatory behaviour of the Muslim authorities in Sarajevo, and quote UNHCR spokesman Chris Janowski saying that the moving into repaired apartments is allowed only for Muslims.
