Among the persons deprived of liberty, there are around thirty (30) officials of customs authorities and the Indirect Taxation Authority of Bosnia and Herzegovina, including the former Director of the Indirect Taxation Authority of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The suspected persons in this case are subject to investigation for corruptive criminal offenses of organized crime, customs and tax evasion, illegal tax remission and VAT refund, money laundering and abuse of office or official authority in relation to the import of textile and other goods to Bosnia and Herzegovina.      

The Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina is conducting financial investigation in this case as well, with the aim of blocking and confiscating illegal material gain and property in multi-million amounts.

Once the representatives of the Prosecution team have questioned the suspects, they will decide whether to put forward a Motion to order custody or to impose prohibiting measures in accordance with the law; moreover, a proposal will be put to block and put under control the state property for which there is evidence suggesting its illegal acquisition.  

The Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina resumes its fight against organized crime and corruption, and no person will be untouchable.
