Statement by the HR/EUSR Miroslav Lajčák following the adoption of police reform legislation in the BiH House of Representatives

I welcome today’s adoption of police reform laws in the BiH House of Representatives. 

I would like to congratulate all those who have worked hard to reach a compromise for the sake of a better future for Bosnia and Herzegovina and all its citizens.

The majority of directly elected MP’s have given their support to these laws; I now expect the BiH HoP to pass this legislation so the country can finally move forward. 

I am sure that will enable the European Commission to consider a positive recommendation for BiH to sign an SAA with the EU in the coming weeks.
