"Unknown perpetrator" probed over Sejdić-Finci caseSource: Tanjug
SARAJEVO -- The Bosnian prosecution is investigating "an unknown perpetrator" for failure to implement the European Court of Human Rights ruling in the Sejdić-Finci case.
The failure of Bosnia-Herzegovina to carry out the ruling "cost it EUR 45 million of EU's IPA funds," it has been reported.
This caused great damage to all citizens, their resentment and dissatisfaction of the international community, according to the Prosecutor's Office.
The Sejdić-Finci case concerns elimination of ethnic discrimination in the electoral process in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Leaders of the main political parties, with EU mediation, have been attempting for several months to negotiate its implementation. However, these attempts have so far been without success.
Apart from losing EU's financial aid, the failure to reach a compromise could bring into question "the recognition of elections to be held next year," Tanjug said in its report.
