Man Arrested In Bosnia With Missing Copy Of Dayton Peace Accords

Bosnian police have arrested a man suspected of fraudulently acquiring an original copy of the country's 1990s peace agreement, which was seized from his home, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

The peace accord was brokered by the United States and consummated by the warring factions - Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia - during a meeting at a United States air base in Dayton, Ohio.

According to the local media, Kuntos used to work as a driver and bodyguard for a former parliamentary speaker in Bosnia's Serb-run entity, Republika Srpska (RS). He reportedly tried to sell the document for 100,000 Bosnian marks ($60,000 or €50,000).

Under the treaty, Bosnia was split into two autonomous regions, the Federation shared by the Bosnian Croats and Muslim Bosniaks, and the Serb-dominated Serb Republic.

The RS Interior Ministry (MUP) said they could not provide any more details about the police operation, and said the entity police will issue a press release.

There are conflicting reports about when Kuntos, 48, was arrested.

Pale, a suburb of Sarajevo, served as the Bosnian Serb leadership's headquarters during the 1992-1995 conflict.

Serbia, also, reportedly lost its original copy, supposedly during the protests which ended Milosevic's rule in October 2000.

The story about the disappearance of the Bosnia-Herzegovina copy of the Dayton Peace Agreement emerged in 2008, when the original document was found to be missing from the BiH Presidency Archive in Sarajevo.

It is not clear how he obtained the document.
