The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) expressed “disappointment” at a decision by the Parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to reject a proposal to extend the mandate of international personnel working with the War Crimes Chamber and Organized Crime Department in the country. The October 1st vote means that all international staff will have to leave by the end of the year.

Twelve persons were arrested on May 29 in Serbia for the murder of 22 civilians in Lovas on October 18, 1991, when members of the Yugoslavian army and Serbian paramilitaries forced some fifty civilians in the Croatian village to walk across a minefield. These arrests are the latest example so far of regional cooperation among prosecutors' offices in Croatia, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, which has made remarkable progress over the past few years.
