Sarajevo

DNEVNI AVAZ

Bosnian Indirect Taxation Authority yesterday got the calculations of cigarette traders with the new prices which will be used from January 1, next year. Most of the cigarettes will be pricier for 10 to 15 euro cent due to higher excises on tobacco products.

Despite obstructions of the Federation entity government, the case against the Prime Minister Nermin Niksic was finished in the Central Electoral Commission and he is to be fined by some 2.500 euro for appointing his brother as a director of the public company Motorways of Federation. The case was determined as a conflict of interests.

NEZAVISNE NOVINE

The corn from Republika Srpska most likely has toxins in it but since no inspection is controlling this it is also likely that citizens already eat it without even knowing it, agriculturists claim. Ljubo Maletic, agriculturist from Bijeljina confirmed that, like in Serbia, domestic corn has toxins and that it was damaged by droughts during the summer.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts in the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
