Bosnia Press Review - October 16, 2012

Lagumdzija and Covic talked about reconstruction of governments. Prosecutor sanctioned for hacking other prosecutor's e-mail. Man thought census enumerators were there for taxes.

Sarajevo

DNEVNI AVAZ

Leaders of the Social Democratic Party and Croatian Democratic Union, Zlatko Lagumdzija and Dragan Covic respectively, met in Sarajevo and said that the structure of government should be determined as soon as possible and it should be the same starting from the state-level to cantonal level. Lagumdzija said that his meeting with Covic is just one of many bilateral meeting Bosnian leader will have before they all meet and discuss what to do with the government.

OSLOBODJENJE

State prosecutor Oleg Cavka made a deal with the  High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council to have 10 per cent lower salary in the nest half year for hacking the e-mail of the former main prosecutor at the time, Milorad Barasin, on June 8, 2011. Cavka was also sanctioned for  sending an e-mail to Dragan Lukac, director of Federation police department, with inappropriate content.

 

NEZAVISNE NOVINE

The test census of population and households in Bosnia started on Monday without any problems but it is interesting that some citizens thought that census enumerators were there due to taxes. It is obvious that some citizens did not know that the test census started. One of the enumerators told Nezavisne daily that the procedure lasts between 30 and 45 minutes.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts in the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
