Provided fines can be 10% of the total monthly income (salary +flat rate) for members of the Parliamentary Assembly of B&H who have a status of the professional delegate, i.e. 70% of the flat rate for parliamentarians who don’t have a professional status in the Parliamentary Assembly of B&H.

“Two instances in making decisions mean that the Commission for human rights will decide about the fine, and collegiums of both parliamentary homes will decide on appeals to brought decisions. Written warnings will be imposed to delegates whose applications show to be ill-founded, Then, they i is not acceptable to come to the session of the Parliament in jeans.

Code will define applications for an inappropriate behavior to be submitted by members of non-governmental organizations, as well as media, if they notice that some delegates are violating the provisions of the Code“, said the chairman of the Commission for human rights, Borislav Bojic.
