EU Office in BiH statement on today’s decisions by High Representative Schmidt

The laws adopted by the RS National Assembly are a direct attack on the integrity of the Constitutional Court of BiH and on the BiH Constitution.

The EU regrets that it was inevitable for the High Representative to act to put them out of force.

The EU recalls that the Bonn Powers are a measure of last resort against irreparable unlawful acts.

The EU strongly urges the RS authorities to stop unilateral actions and instead to work constructively so that Bosnia and Herzegovina may be able to deliver on reforms for the benefits for all citizens, seizing the opportunity offered by candidate status.
