DNEVNI AVAZ

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.

OSLOBODJENJE

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.
