The Government of the Republika Srpska (RS) will establish and propose to the National Assembly of the RS (NARS) a new law on immovable property that is used for the functioning of the public authority of the RS, the Government of the RS announced the day before yesterday.
The announcement comes after the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) made a decision that invalidated the current law.
”With the aim of protecting the property of the RS and determined to preserve the legal security of all citizens and institutions of the RS, which has been severely damaged by this decision of the Constitutional Court of BiH, the RS will adopt a new law on immovable property,” it is emphasized in the announcement.
The Government of the RS, as stated, condemns the decision of the Constitutional Court which annulled the Law on Immovable Property Used for the Functioning of the Public Authority of the RS, and assesses that in this way the Dayton Peace Agreement and the Constitution of BiH itself are directly violated.
”With the adoption of the new law, the property of the RS will remain the property of the RS, as it was decisively and unequivocally determined by the Dayton Peace Agreement, and there is not a single court that can dispute the right of the RS to be the owner of its property,” the announcement added.
The Constitutional Court of BiH established at its session on Thursday, September 22nd, that “RS does not have the constitutional authority to regulate the legal matter that is the subject of the Law on Immovable Property Used for the Functioning of the Public Authority of the RS” because that is the competence of BiH, Klix.ba writes.
