Following the questioning of the suspects the Assigned Prosecutor requested remand in custody on grounds stipulated in Article 132, Paragraph 1, Subparagraphs a) b) c) and d) of the BiH Criminal Procedure Code.
Remand in custody was, inter alia, requested due to risk of flight and the risk that, if released, the suspects might interfere with the investigation, suppress evidence and seek to influence the witnesses or accomplices.
Remand in custody was also requested due to risk that, if released, the suspects might repeat the criminal offense and the manner of execution of the crime committed suggests that their release could lead to disruption of public order and safety.
Custody motion was filed with the Court of BiH.
The Prosecutor's Office of BiH continues its activities in this case with the aim of issuing an indictment.
