DNEVNI AVAZ

House of the Peoples of the Bosnian Parliament adopted the budget for 2013. Nine delegates vote in support and three were against the document. Bosniaks from the Party of Democratic Action submitted 10 amendments but none of those was accepted.

OSLOBODJENJE

Two of 18 decertified policemen visited the new Interior Minister Nermin Pecanac who said that all of them will be offered a job in the ministry in order to make up for the injustice done to them. The 18 were engaged within the special police units in Sarajevo but during an action and arrests they were fired under accusations of unauthorized arrests.

NEZAVISNE NOVINE

Mevlid Jasarevic was sentenced to 18 years of prison for the terrorist attack to the US embassy in Sarajevo. The other two, Emrah Fojnica and Munib Ahmetspahic, who were charged as helpers, were released due to lack of evidence.
