U.S. slaps new sanctions on Bosnian Serb leader, calling him a threat to Balkan ‘territorial integrity’

By Grayson Quay The Week

The U.S. Department of the Treasury announced Wednesday that it was imposing additional sanctions against Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik and a media company he allegedly controls, Reuters reports.

A Treasury Department statement accused Dodik of “corrupt activities and continued threats to the stability and territorial integrity” of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Last month, the lower house of the Republika Srpska passed a non-binding resolution that would decouple the semi-autonomous republic from Bosnia and Herzegovina’s tax system, military, and judicial system.
