Dodik: Successful fight against crime and corruption

BANJALUKA – Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik said today in Banjaluka that the Republika Srpska Police Force is an efficient agency which is successfully fighting all forms of crime and corruption.“We must not forget Republika Srpska police officers who were killed in the patriotic defence war and those who died later. Police is an important identification segment of Republika Srpska,” Dodik told reporters after a solemn reception held on the occasion of Republika Srpska Police Day, April 4.

According to him, as of late, the Republika Srpska Police Force has faced attacks by BiH bodies which want to diminish its strength.

“We are adamant to oppose it. The Republika Srpska Police Force will be even stronger, more powerful and will continue to defend the safety of Republika Srpska,” Dodik says.

He said that the Republika Srpska Police Force is directing a significant portion of its activities to the fight against terrorism, as one of the most serious elements which threaten security.

“We will continue to train and equip our police force so that it could face all security risks in a quality manner,” Dodik said.

He wished all members of the Republika Srpska Police Force a happy Police Day, April 4. The solemn reception was attended by Republika Srpska Prime Minister Zeljka Cvijanovic, Interior Minister Dragan Lukac, police director Gojko Vasic, Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic and representatives of NGOs that came into being after the patriotic defence war.

BiH Security Minister Dragan Mektic, in the capacity of an envoy of the Republika Srpska member of the BiH Presidency, Mladen Ivanic, representatives of the diplomatic corps, and a delegation of the Republika Srpska 3rd Infantry Regiment, also attended the reception. (SRNA)
