Bosnian State Prosecutor's Office will form a case against anyone who denies genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, the institution said on Friday following the genocide denial ban that was imposed by the office of the international envoy in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“After the High Representative in BiH, Valentin Inzko, passed the amendments to the Criminal Code of BiH, which prohibit and punishes denial of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, the Prosecutor's Office of BiH will form a case to monitor and record all publications by individuals, groups or associations, which express views on denial of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes made after these amendments to the Criminal Code enter force.,” said the Prosecutor's office, adding that all necessary data will be collected in cooperation with partner police and security agencies.

A few days before he leaves the office and hands over the duty to German envoy Christian Schmidt, Inzko imposed amendments to the Criminal Code of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which among other things stipulate the prison of up to five years for genocide denial.
