US Embassy: This legislation pushes RS toward greater authoritarianism

The US Embassy in BiH warned that the RSNA’s recent adoption in the first reading of the draft Law on the Special Register and Transparency of Work of Non-Profit Organizations represents yet another move by the RS government to limit fundamental freedoms and civil liberties of residents of the RS.

This legislation will place NGOs under increased pressure, make them vulnerable to prosecution for legitimate activities, and reduce their ability to provide important social services for the public.

This legislation pushes the RS toward greater authoritarianism and sacrifices the RS residents’ interests in a democratic and prosperous future to the narrow, selfish interests of an RS leadership intent on enriching themselves at the expense of the people they claim to represent, announced the Embassy of the United States of America in BiH on the X platform.
