Dear Mr. Reljic,

On December 15, 1998, we have informed you about the High Representative’s decision to suspend you from office pending investigation of your participation in the public rally in Vlasenica on December 4, 1998, leading to threats against the lives of representatives of the International Community. Meanwhile, we have been informed that you are neglecting this instruction and continue to exert your official duties.

Therefore, under the authorities vested upon me under section XI of the Bonn PIC declaration, I, the High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina relieve you from your office with immediate effect. You are strictly forbidden to exercise any of the obligations or rights of President of the Municipal Assembly of Vlasenica from now on.

Copies of this letter will be forwarded to Dr. Nikola Poplasen, President of the Republika Srpska, Mr. Milorad Dodik, Prime Minister of the Republika Srpska, and the heads of the party clubs in the Municipal Assembly of Vlasenica.
