The aforementioned Institute is conducting a project related to the fight against illicit trade and smuggling in South Eastern Europe, and the Institute wishes to establish contacts with the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina, since the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina is an institution which, among other criminal offences falling within its jurisdiction, also prosecutes perpetrators of the criminal offences pertaining to illicit trade and smuggling of goods and persons.
