Member of Presidency of Bosnia and Herzgeovina Milorad Dodik said that the Republika Srpska (RS) Police should be given even greater powers in order to be able to defend themselves from migrants, and in that regard it must be ready for rigorous actions.
Dodik said that RS could have had a tragic situation yesterday, that one of the police officers could be killed in Klasnice near Banja Luka during the search for a group of migrants, Vijesti.ba news portal reports.
He reminded that he has been saying for years that migrants are a huge security threat.
“I remember that maybe five or six years ago I said that a significant number of migrants would move into BiH and that then the SDS and (Aleksandra) Pandurevic made jokes about it, “Dodik said.
In any case, Dodik pointed out, the Republika Srpska remains committed to the policy it established earlier, which is that there should be no detention of migrants on its territory.
“All attempts from BiH, first of all, from Sarajevo, and even from the West, to distribute migrants evenly throughout BiH will not work. Neither hospitals will be set up in Republika Srpska, nor will migrants be detained. Republika Srpska is interested in their urgent deportation from BiH, “Dodik said.
