Bosnian Muslims slam Serb leader for alleged corruption

The main Muslim Bosnian party says the Bosnian Serb leader's persistence in demanding that Bosnia's state court and prosecution office be dissolved and that the Bosnian Serb mini-state secede reflects his efforts to avoid being prosecuted for corruption.

Milorad Dodik, the Bosnian Serb leader who has been advocating secession for years, has again called for the state court and prosecution office to be dissolved and predicted that Bosnia will fall apart "like a house of cards."

The Muslim Bosnian Party for Democratic Action said Tuesday that Dodik's attacks against state institutions are aimed to distract attention from corruption that prosecutors are investigating that involves him and his associates.

Dodik is claiming the court has an anti-Serb bias and must be shut down.
