OPERATION TARGETING SEVERAL PERSONS SUSPECTED OF INTERNATIONAL DRUG SMUGGLING CARRIED OUT ON ORDERS OF THE PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE OF BIH22.04.2022. 09:16
The suspects are charged that early this year they organized a group for committing criminal acts of illicit drug trafficking earlier this year, with clearly divided roles and tasks, in order to smuggle large quantities of narcotic drugs and acquire illegal property gain.
The activities were carried out with the support of the RS Ministry of Interior and the Sarajevo Canton Ministry of Interior.
Considering that there is an active police officer (from the Directorate for Coordination of Police Bodies of BiH) among the suspects, the activities also have elements of corruption activities and abuse of police powers and information.
The suspects will be handed over to the prosecutor in charge within the legal deadline, who will make a decision on further activities.
