  • INDICTMENT FILED AGAINST FOREIGN CITIZENS CHARGED WITH INTERNATIONAL SMUGGLING OF MIGRANTS

A prosecutor of the Special Department for Organised Crime, Economic Crime and Corruption of the Prosecutor’s Office of BiH filed an indictment against:

 

-       Warris Zigid, born in 2002 in Tehran, Iran, citizen of Iran, who is remanded in custody, and

-       Kamal Ulldin Arab, born in 2002 in Nangahar, Afghanistan, citizen of Afghanistan, who is remanded in custody.

 

The charges against the aforementioned defendants are that in Meterize, Zvornik municipality, in the night hours of August 22, 2023, they together and in concert with persons known to them from the territory of the Republic of Serbia, took part in the smuggling of eight illegal migrants, citizens of Afghanistan, for the purpose of acquiring unlawful property gain, which is contrary to Article 6 of the Protocol against Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air supplementing the UN Convention against Transnational Organised Crime, as well as the provisions of the Law on Border Control.
