the miami herald | 04/03/2003 | iraqi embargo breach forces key bosnian official to resign<blockquote>bosnia’s top directly elected official resigned wednesday after being implicated in a local company’s violation of the u.n. arms embargo against iraq, the speaker of the bosnian serb parliament said.

mirko sarovic, a bosnian serb who was the chairman of the country’s three-member multiethnic presidency, knew about and failed to stop the illegal export of refurbished engines for iraq’s military aircraft, according to a team of international investigators.

the team’s report was presented last week to bosnia’s top international official, paddy ashdown.</blockquote>
