A prosecutor of the Prosecutor’s Office of BiH has filed an indictment against:
- MILJAN KULIĆ, born in 1975 in Foča, with a criminal record, citizen of BiH.
The accused is charged with having committed two criminal offences in such a way that in the boot and hidden places in the passenger motor vehicle he was operating on the main road Foča-Sarajevo he transported more than 6,000 packs of cigarettes of various brands without appropriate excise stamps of the State of BiH, which he intended to put up for sale.
The cigarettes were found during a check carried out by RS MoI police officers.
