Bosniak leader: Dodik to face consequences of unlawful referendum

Bosnia and Herzegovina's collective presidency chairman, Bakir Izetbegovic, who is the Bosnian Muslim leader, said on Sunday that Bosnian Serb entity president Milorad Dodik and others engaged in the holding of the unlawful referendum on the entity's holiday would have to face the consequences of that "anti-constitutional and illegal act".

Izetbegovic said that the referendum held on Sunday was a notorious example of the violation of the Dayto peace accords.

Izetbegovic told the press that the Bosnian judicial authorities as well as the international community should respond to this insistence of the Bosnian Serb authorities on the referendum.

He also described Dodik's behaviour as irrational stubbornness.
