EU Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fuele on Monday opened a dialogue aimed at examining the work of the judiciary in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in Banja Luka, reported the Serbian news agency Tanjug.

The dialogue held in Banja Luka, the capital of the Bosnian Serb-dominated entity, comes only weeks after President of Republika Srpska Milorad Dodik agreed to withdraw a proposed referendum in favor of an EU-facilitated dialogue on the work and legality of the judiciary.

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton offered the compromise solution during her visit to Banja Luka on May 13. The proposed referendum had provoked a harsh response from the international community.

At the time, Dodik said Asthon had pledged a "comprehensive overview of the whole judiciary" which would be led by Fuele. Dodik challenged the legitimacy and the impartiality of the judicial institutions of BiH, in particular with respect to Prosecutor's Office pursuing war crimes committed against Bosnian Serbs.
