Bakir Izetbegovic, leader of the SDA, spoke out after receiving a summons from SIPA for questioning, under the order of the Prosecutor's Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina, on suspicion of committing the criminal offense of "inciting national, religious, and racial hatred." In addition to Izetbegovic, the Director of the Srebrenica Memorial Center Emir Suljagic and political analyst Reuf Bajrovic were also summoned.

“Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country where genocide is denied with impunity, bizarre jokes are made about it on TV shows, war criminals are glorified, and imams and returnees are attacked. Milorad Dodik leads in all of this, especially with his recent denial of the genocide in Srebrenica. The Prosecutor's Office is deaf, mute, and blind to such statements. Neither Dodik nor other genocide deniers have ever been called for questioning,” Izetbegovic stated.

He emphasized that the summons came when the UN General Assembly adopted the Resolution on the Genocide in Srebrenica, suggesting this was a “clear message both in terms of timing and the selection of people being summoned.”

“A message is being sent to all Bosniaks and all Bosnian patriots: to remain silent, not to oppose, to be aware of who controls the Prosecutor's Office and SIPA. I have never uttered a single word that could offend any nation's member or incite inter-ethnic hatred. What I have said, and will always repeat, is a call to strengthen the defense capacities of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The statements about military strengthening that the Prosecutor's Office suddenly finds problematic were given at a time when secessionist policies were gaining momentum,” Izetbegovic said.

“For the preservation of peace and stability, it is necessary to strengthen institutions and all segments of defense, from the Armed Forces and police structures to every patriotically minded individual. Of course, all within the framework of the Constitution and laws of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” said Izetbegovic.

SIPA Director Darko Culum stated earlier that the Prosecutor's Office saw Izetbegovic's speech at an election rally in Hadzici two years ago as problematic.

Slaven Raguz, president of the Croatian Republican Party, filed a criminal complaint against Izetbegovic, Suljagic, and Bajrovic two years ago for “inciting national, racial, and religious hatred and intolerance.”
