International Community's High Representative Valentin Inzko recalled the tragic deaths of 12 officials from the Office of the Hign Representative (OHR) and the UN in a helicopter crash 23 years ago in the mountains above Fojnica at Prokosko Lake.

“The tragic deaths of our colleagues Peter Backes, Livio Beccaccio, Andrzej Buler, David Kriskovich, Leah Melnick, Charles Morpeth, William Nesbitt, Marvin Padgett, Thomas Reinhardt, Jurgen Schauf, Georg Stiebler, and Gerd Wagner are the ultimate testimony to their dedication, and the dedication of many others who served in Bosnia and Herzegovina and helped to achieve lasting peace and the recovery of this country,” said Inzko who oversees the civilian implementation of the Dayton Peace Agreement, which ended the 1992-95 Bosnian war and added:

“Today Bosnia and Herzegovina is on the path towards the European Union. The success of the country on that path is the best way to honour their memory.”
