EU sanctions for Bosnia

According to rumors, recently confirmed by Inzko, the EU is considering travel bans and asset freezes for Bosnian politicians who are blocking all reforms in the country. I am really wondering how they think to defend that for the European Court of Human Rights. This is punishment without process, violation of property rights and violation of freedom of movement.

Another proposal is the posting of an EU ambassador the posting of an EU ambassador who would have a budget of up to 108 million euro this year that could be used to 'reward' parties who pledge cooperation. I propose that the next elections they simply go the the voting booths and ask everyone which party they voted. If they voted the "right" party (from the point of view of the EU) they would receive 50 euro. It would open new perspectives in EU "democracy promotion".
