Bosnia Press Review - January 8, 2013

Magros company loosing money. Date of meeting still unknown. SNSD getting stronger.



Half-year financial report of Magros Veletrgovine company showed that the company lost more than 200.000 euro in the first six months of 2012. Magros was privatized by the Saudi businessman Al-Shiddi who avoided investing more than 40 million euro and employing 166 people which means he caused damage to the Sarajevo Canton which could be counted in tens of millions of KM.


Leaders of the four parties which make the new parliamentary majority in the Federation BiH entity are to meet with the representatives of the international community in Bosnia but the date of the meeting is still unknown. They are to talk about the reconstruction of the government in the Bosniak-Croat entity.


Nikola Spiric, Vice-President of the alliance of Independent Social Democrats, SNSD, said that attempts to undermine the party within are only making it stronger from the outside. He added that the party was tried to be destabilized from the October local elections but claims that it is now getting even stronger. Spiric noted that id SNSD and the Serb Democratic Party, SDS, continue to argue it would destabilize Republika Srpska.
