Both short and intermediate gamma-ray bursts are distributed anisotropically in the sky (Mészaŕos, A. et al. ApJ, 539, 98 (2000), Vavrek, R. et al. MNRAS, 391, 1 741 (2008)). Hence, in the redshift range, where these bursts take place, the cosmological principle is in doubt. It has already been noted that short bursts should be mainly at redshifts smaller than one (Mészaŕos, A. et al. Gamma-ray burst: Sixth Huntsville Symp., AIP, Vol. 1 133, 483 (2009); Mészaŕos, A. et al. Baltic Astron., 18, 293 (2009)). Here we show that intermediate bursts should be at redshifts up to three.
