Accordingly, we will use every legal option and take all measures and actions to protect the professionalism and reputation of the Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and to sanction every MoD and AFBiH employee if it is found that he provided false information to the media, ” the Ministry stated.
