Bosnia's tripartite Presidency Chairman, Zeljko Komsic, issued an instruction to the Bosnian Embassy staff in Sweden to boycott Tuesday's Nobel Prize award ceremony to Peter Handke known for his controversial views on the Srebrenica genocide, the Chairman's Office told N1 Monday.

Komsic's Office informed the Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sweden that no authorization was given for anyone's presence at the Nobel Prize award ceremony on Bosnia's behalf.

"We hereby inform you that the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina has taken the position whereby it does not authorize anyone to attend the Nobel Prize award ceremony on behalf of Bosnia and Herzegovina, or on behalf of the Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Kingdom of Sweden," the Presidency told N1 and noted that any form of arbitrary action which would go against the decision of the Presidency on this matter would be a violation of the Constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
