Bosnian Army monument destroyed in an explosion. Hidrogradnja to be privatized. Banja Luka police joins Zagreb explosion investigation.
An explosion happened around 2 a.m. on Sunday in Mostar and it destroyed a lily-shaped monument to Bosnian Army soldiers. Many have condemned the attack while the police still did not find out who is responsible for the act.
One of the candidates to privatize the construction company Hidrogradnja is the company GP Put from Sarajevo. Hidrogradnja lost the last five or six years and the state could earn a lot more money if it privatized it before. The value of Hidrogradnja is incomparably lower than few years ago.
Vojislav Blazevic, who was hurt during the Zagreb explosion, will be in custody for a month. According to unofficial information he is being charged with setting two explosive devices but not for making them as well. Since Blazevic had contacts near Banja Luka, the police of Republika Srpska is also investigating the case.
