Bosnian Serb leader defies prosecution summons to Sarajevo


BANJA LUKA, Bosnia (Reuters) - The head of Bosnia's autonomous Serb region rejected a summons by the national chief prosecutor on Tuesday, saying he would not travel to Sarajevo for questioning over his violation of a ruling by the politically-divided country's highest court.

Milorad Dodik defied a ban imposed by the Constitutional Court last weekend when he held and won a referendum on whether his region should mark "Statehood Day", a national holiday opposed by the region's Muslim Bosniaks and Catholic Croats.
