High Representative Schmidt marks 25th anniversary of Prokoško Lake helicopter crash

A quarter of a century has passed since 12 of our colleagues died in a helicopter crash at Prokoško Lake. On this occasion, we remember Peter Backes, Livio Beccaccio, Andrzej Buler, David Kriskovich, Leah Melnick, Charles Morpeth, William Nesbitt, Marvin Padgett, Thomas Reinhardt, Jurgen Schauf, Georg Stiebler, and Ambassador Gerd Wagner. Today we are remembering their dedicated work and renewing our commitment to continue helping BiH and its people. This is our tribute to them, and our lasting duty to the people of this country, said the High Representative Christian Schmidt.
