Bosnian Serb leader questioned over illegal referendum


SARAJEVO (Reuters) - Under U.S. pressure, the leader of Bosnia's autonomous Serb Republic on Friday submitted to questioning by prosecutors, after defying a summons for three months, for holding a referendum in violation of a Constitutional Court ruling.

The country's chief prosecutor called in Milorad Dodik in September but he refused to come to the Bosnian capital, citing security concerns. Dodik had said that he would settle for questioning only on the territory of the Serb Republic.
