Following the International Court of Justice's acknowledgement that genocide was committed in Srebrenica (eastern Bosnia) in 1995, Bosniak town council members have demanded a special status for the district within the Serb-dominated Republika Srpska (RS), one of the two entities comprising Bosnia-Herzegovina. Deemed unconstitutional by RS Prime Minister Dodik, eventually a "special social-economic status" was yielded to Srebrenica Municipality. Dodik, SETimes, reported, "promised that the RS cabinet would step up efforts to implement social and economic projects in Srebrenica to improve the quality of life there, adding that 7.5m euros will be earmarked this year to finance return projects, rebuild the power network and build two new main roads." The RS cabinet moreover obliged "all relevant institutions and state-run companies to draw up economic development projects and ensure the equal employment of all constituent peoples' members in Srebrenica. It also requires the RS Privatisation Commission to conduct an immediate review of all privatisation deals conducted there." (Sources: 1,2,3)
