"The president of Lukavac Municipality personally committed for the security of the Serbs in these areas, and said that several Serbs would join local police, which should additionally guarantee security of Serb returnees", Janowski claimed. When asked whether these were the same security guarantees like those in Vogosca when the Serbs were stoned and subjected to various harassment, Janowski said: "The incident in Vogosca has noting to do with this. The Serbs who decide to return would be guaranteed security. The Muslim party is committed for the full implementation of all Dayton agreement provisions."
