JULY 15 1997 DAY


BANJA LUKA - His Holiness the Serbian Patriarch Mr. Pavle met in Banja Luka with the president of Republika Srpska Biljana Plavsic. From the Cabinet of RS president in Banja Luka didn't come any confirmation about this meeting, nor any official public announcement was issued after the end of talks, which attended also other high church officials.

BELGRADE - The chief of the General Staff of RS Army /VRS/, general Pero Colic stated that his name is also in the secret list of indicted for war crimes. "The SFOR secret lists speak unambiguously that it is the method of blackmailing Serbs, in order to lead them most quickly into unitary B&H, which is not written in no any provision of the Dayton Agreement", stated general Colic for "Vecernje novosti"/Evening news/.

DOBOJ - The ICRC expressed the readiness to continue the humanitarian mission in RS rejecting any involvement in the Prijedor accident. Forwarding to SRNA the direct confession of the SFOR HQ sector "Southwest" in Banja Luka that its members during arresting doctor Kovacevic had brought the parcel with the sign of Red Cross, the ICRC once again expressed its concern because misusing this sign.

BRCKO - Around 500 citizens of Brcko protested because of the decision of OSCE that 3,809 persons eligible to vote on the local elections in Brcko will be sent on complaint procedure. The peaceful rally was organised by the Association of Refugees and Displaced Persons from Brcko, and the citizens of this city expressed protest while walking from the OSCE Office to the seat of the supervisor for the region of Brcko Robert Farrand.

BELGRADE - The Serbian Democratic Party of Serbian States /SDS SZ/ required from the Holly Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church to hold a requiem for Simo Drljaca in all churches in the country and Diaspora on the Saturday, July 19 at 12 h, by five minutes ringing of the church bells. In the announcement from the Belgrade's Office of SDS SZ is expressed the astonishment by the crime committed against Simo Drljaca, in the presence of his underage son and cites the unity of the people and political parties in RS in condemning such behaviour of those who are supposed to be the protector of peace and human rights.

AMSTERDAM - The international crisis group /ICG/ thinks that NATO would prolong mandate to SFOR in B&H after the June 1998, and that this decision should be brought as soon as possible, it is said in the comment of this organisation, reported by

Dutch media. However, the certain circles in NATO and some diplomats in Washington think that SFOR have to be withdrawn as soon as possible, because according to his opinion, the longer staying of the army in the zone of separation could lead to strengthening the inter-entity boundary line and turn it into the international state border.

PARIS - NATO and the Hague Tribunal attacked RS in order to get the credibility, and never took care about criminals which victims were Serbs - concludes the journalist of the French news "Figaro" Renee Girard, after announcing the 20 years sentence to Dusan Tadic. Girard reminds that the Croatian army in the year 1995, after conquering Krajina, massacred several hundreds of older people of Serbian nationality, who have decided to stay on their ancestor's land.

ATHENS - The decision of the Hague Tribunal to sentence Dusan Tadic 20 years in prison because alleged participating in war crimes, although during long trial - the farce, nothing against him was proved, the Greek media interprets like the political verdict against all Serbian people. While noting that this Court exclusively deals with the indictments against Serbs, the commentator of the Greek state television assessed that such partiality and injustice provokes the justified revolt and bitterness of the Serbian people, as well as the whole democratic world who deems that the judiciary dare not interfere into the political games.

KOZARSKA DUBICA - The Municipal Board of SDS in Kozarska Dubica concluded at the last session that the constitutionalpolitical crisis in RS must be overcome as soon as possible in all institutions of the system, along with respecting the basic patriotic, state and national-historical interests. In the public announcement is expressed the strong protest "because of selfwillingness of some individuals who won elections backed by SDS and then, naively believing to the world powers started to make politically catastrophic harmful arrangements for RS".

DOBOJ - The Prijedor's events and the role of SFOR in it deteriorated the security situation in Doboj - it is concluded at the session of the Executive Board of the Municipal Assembly of Doboj. For the additional complicating the situation contributed the leaflets which appeared last weekend in Doboj.
