JULY 25 1997 DAY


SARAJEVO - The Government of Republika Srpska (RS) is expected to take a stance over the emerging problems relating to the voters lists for the up- coming local elections, at its 52nd session in Pale. The abundant agenda includes the election implementation, proposal on tax exemption for importation of mineral fertilisers, as well as the Japanese grant to RS Government.

SARAJEVO - RS premier Gojko Klickovic said the amount of funds allowed at the Donors Conference in Brussels was expected one, reports DPA, adding that the premier hopes for a fair distribution of funds between RS and Federation of B-H. The copresident of the B-H Council of Ministers, Haris Silajdzic said in Sarajevo he was satisfied with the Conference results, and that the pledged funds would be portioned according to 70:30 principle. The aid is strictly conditioned upon the implementation of the Dayton agreement.

BANJALUKA - Out of total amount of the funds raised at the two-day Donors Conference, one third, or abut US $ 400 million, will be allocated for the reconstruction efforts in RS. This was confirmed by RS finance minister, Ranko Travar, at Banjaluka press conference held upon his arrival from Brussels. He specified that 48 countries pledged US $ 1.226 billion aid.

PALE - The co-president of the Council of Ministers of B-H from RS, Boro Bosic, stated that he was not surprised by the international community's double standards applied at the Donors Conference.

BANJALUKA, BIJELJINA - The president of the Democratic Party for Banjaluka and Krajina, Nikola Spiric, says that the Donors Conference in Brussels showed "disastrous output of the current Serb policy, and reproved that only democratic implementation of the RS presidential decisions allows some brighter perspective for the Serbian people". For yesterday's RS Senate session, Spiric said "was a copy of the former RS Assembly". His party announced that the Donors Conference was one more indicator that US-led international community was set to continue with implementation of its "stick and carrot" tactics in the politically shaky regions.

SARAJEVO - A final decision on legal validity of the decision of the RS president Biljana Plavsic to dissolve Parliament and schedule new elections would be provided by the RS Constitutional Court and would be binding for all, stated the RS justice minister, Branko Petric. He dismissed as unacceptable attempts at establishing competence of the B-H Constitutional Court, some other B-H joint bodies or the Venice Commission.

AMSTERDAM - Jeni Luhtenberg, who worked in the Pale hospital during the war, reacted to the arrest of the director of the Prijedor Hospital Dr Milan Kovacevic, by a letter to the Hague Tribunal, stating her wish to witness at the trial "since, as the only one Western volunteer who worked with the RS doctors during the three and-a-half years of war, she witnessed that they did their job professionally, humanely and correctly treating all patients."

TUZLA - An unidentified person threw a "Motolov cocktail" type fire bomb at a car which belonged to SFOR soldier in Vlasenica, says the announcement issued in the Tuzla SFOR base. None was injured in the incident.
