Vesna Redzic, 39, was kicked out from her house by her husband's brother, and she and her children are currently in a safe house in Bihac. Vesna was allegedly being beaten up for years by her brother-in-law Osman and his wife, in a house where she also lived with her husband Emin. But since Emin was mentally ill, his brother Osman sent him to the hospital. For five years, Vesna was being attacked and beaten.

OSLOBODJENJE

Central Electoral Commission, CIK, is to fine Alliance of Independent Social Democrats, lead by Milorad Dodik, for not having documentation that Serbian  singer Ceca entertained two party gatherings during campaign. Director of CIK, Branko Petric, did not put this decision earlier on the agenda because he was waiting for the new law on financing political parties which is milder. Seems like he is the number 1 protector of the political parties.

NEZAVISNE NOVINE

Motorway Banja Luka to Gradiska gave effects in the first year already. Security in transport was increased, number of accidents decreased, but also traveling became cheaper in this area, experts say. A year ago, the part of the motorway was opened, totaling to 32 kilometers. Republika Srpska will also build motorway from Banja Luka to Doboj.
