The accused is charged with having, during the period from 2012 to 2015, as an employee of the Directorate for Coordination of Police Bodies (DCPB) of Bosnia and Herzegovina, while acting in her capacity as Advisor for Analysis and Assessment, committed corruption offenses with the aim of illegal interceding in employment of certain persons.
The indictment alleges that the accused has, with the aim of acquiring unlawful property gain, made contact with the person with initials A. O., from whom she demanded cash ranging from BAM 3000 to BAM 5000, promising to use her connections and influence in DCPB BiH to intervene that officials of DCPB BiH perform an action that should not performed, or that that the aforementioned person be assessed as the best candidate for the position in the vacancy announcement and then employed in DCPB BiH as a police officer.
The aforementioned candidate has, on several occasions, paid sums ranging between BAM 1,900 and BAM 3,000 totaling the amount to BAM 10,400 which was paid into the account of the accused in a commercial bank or handed over personally to the accused.
After that, as alleged in the indictment, the accused illegally obtained several written tests used for vacancy announcements in DCPB BiH, which she handed over to the said candidate.

After it happened that these persons were not employed in Public Company Elektroprivreda BiH, the injured party requested a refund threatening to report everything to the police, and the accused, fearing the consequences of reporting, gave back the amount of BAM 7,000.
The accused is charged with having received benefits to use her official and influential position in the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and to intercede in performance of an official act that should not be performed and with having, with the aim of acquiring unlawful property gain, misled another person through false representation of facts and held him in error thus leading him to do something harmful to his/her property, thereby committing the criminal offense of Illegal Interceding under Article 219 of the CC BiH and the criminal offense of Fraud under Article 294 of the CC FBiH.
