Dayton Agreement Map

The speeches, from a podium in front of 23 flags, placed in French alphabetical series, were strictly limited to six minutes each. Alija Izetbegovic, the president of Bosnia, said: «My government signs this agreement without any enthusiasm, as someone who takes a bitter but useful potion.» On 13 February 2008, the head of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Eljko Komié, declared that the original Dayton Agreements had been lost from the presidency`s archives. The High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina Miroslav Lajak said: «I don`t know if the news is sad or funny.» [24] On 16 November 2009, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs handed over the certified copy of the Dayton Agreements to the French Embassy in Sarajevo. The copy was then handed over to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina. [25] The original was found in 2017 in a private residence in Pale, which led to the arrest of one person. [26] This was one of the first cases in which the Court of Justice had to deal with the question of the legal nature of the Constitution. In making a remark of the nature of the obiter dictum concerning Annex IV (Constitution) and the rest of the peace agreement, the Court effectively «created the ground for the legal unity»[9] of the entire peace agreement, which further implied that all annexes were in hierarchical equality. In subsequent decisions, the Court confirmed that it was using other annexes of the peace agreement as a basis for direct analysis, and not only in the systematic interpretation of Schedule IV.

However, since the Court rejected the applicant, it did not address the issues relating to the legality of the procedure in which the new Constitution (Annex IV) came to power and replaced the old Constitution of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Court used the same reasoning to dismiss the similar appeal in a later case. [10] After the initials in Dayton, Ohio, on 21 November 1995, the full and formal agreement was signed on 14 December 1995 in Paris[4] and was signed with the lives of Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez, French President Jacques Chirac, US President Bill Clinton, British Prime Minister John Major, German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and Russian Prime Minister Viktor Tscheryrnomdin. The most serious threat to peace signed this week comes from the Bosnian Serbs, who not only publicly denounced the agreement, but privately refused to open either the map or the military annexes to the long and complex agreement. It was only a few minutes before the announcement of the peace agreement that the Bosnian Serbs were stunned in the delegation when they saw that they had lost the suburbs of Sarajevo and that they were commanding heights they defended during the siege. The agreement has tasked a wide range of international organizations to monitor, monitor and implement elements of the agreement. IFOR, led by NATO, was responsible for implementing the military aspects of the agreement and was deployed on 20 December 1995 under the leadership of UNPROPA forces. The High Representative was responsible for civil implementation. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe was tasked with organising the first free elections in 1996. [5] The immediate purpose of the agreement was to freeze military confrontation and prevent its resumption.

It was therefore defined as a «construction of necessity.» [11] The main objective of the agreement is to promote peace and stability in Bosnia and Herzegovina and to promote regional balance in and around the former Yugoslavia (Article V, Appendix 1-B), i.e. from a regional perspective. [5] On 13 October 1997, the Croatian right-wing party in 1861 and the right-wing Party Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1861 asked the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina to overturn several decisions and uphold a decision of the Supreme Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina. more importantly, to verify the constitutionality of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as it was stated that the agreement was contrary to the constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
