Conservative movement in Serbia calls Bosnia's high representative 'occupier'


With separatism gaining ground among Serb leaders in Bosnia-Herzegovina, a conservative movement in neighboring Serbia is fanning the flames, denouncing the international high representative in Bosnia-Herzegovina as an "occupier."

The current separatist push in Bosnia-Herzegovina began last year when ethnic Serb lawmakers disagreed with moves by the former high representative, and the conservative Nashi movement in Serbia is apparently taking up the separatist flag.

Nashi on Friday pasted the center of the Serbian capital Belgrade with posters blasting Christian Schmidt, the new high representative in Bosnia-Herzegovina, a multi-ethnic nation which includes Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats.

The posters also said that Schmidt should keep his "hands off" the Serbian-dominated Republika Srpska, one of the two entities in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Nashi also accused Schmidt of seeking to overthrow Milorad Dodik, the ethnic Serb member of the three-member presidential council of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
