U.S. Treasury Places New Sanctions On Bosnian Serb Leader Dodik

Andrew H. Sweet

On its website, the Treasury Department announced on January 5 that it had added television station Alternativna Televizija, which has links to Dodik, to the sanctions list.

Dodik won the elections in October 2018 as the Serbian member of Bosnia's multiethnic three-person presidency. He has repeatedly threatened to withdraw from state-level institutions, describing Bosnia as "an experiment by the international community" and an "impossible, imposed country."

The U.S. Treasury Department first imposed sanctions against Dodik in 2017, saying he was actively obstructing efforts to implement the 1995 Dayton accords.
