The State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA) is conducting a search to collect documentation related to the disputed public procurement, Vijesti.ba has learned from several sources, and a search of the premises of the Federal Civil Protection Administration (FUCZ) began in the afternoon with the aim of taking the documentation on the disputed public procurements.
The State Prosecutor’s Office on Monday took over the investigation into the disputed procurement of 100 respirators imported to BiH from China by the company “FH Srebrena Malina”.
It was announced this morning that Fahrudin Solak, director of the Federal Civil Protection Administration, was released from the hospital today and should be at his workplace.
The purchase of 100 respirators by the Government of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina from China worth 10.5 million BAM, which will be imported by the company selling raspberries was commented by “Our Party” representative in the Federal Parliament Mirsad Camdzic, Klix.ba news portal reports.
He described this procurement as “the most scandalous since Fadil Novalic headed the Federal Government” and requested that the entire case be examined by the BiH’s Public Procurement Agency:
“These are highly sophisticated and extremely expensive medical equipment, whose market price is much lower than the one at which the Federal Government purchased it. In addition to the Agency having to deal with this, it is necessary for the Federal Prime Minister as soon as possible to inform public about procurement procedures.”
Camdzic asked for an urgent answer to several questions, such as how did they chose the importer, why was nobody involved in the procurement but only the Federal Civil Protection headquarters, who will maintain the respirators?
“We already suspect that on the scene there is profiteering on the side of those who should get us out of this situation as soon as possible. If the doubts are confirmed, this Government no longer deserves any of the cooperation shown so far by opposition representatives and citizens. It becomes part of problems, not part of the solution to the crisis, “emphasized Camdzic. Namely, the Federal Government has bought 100 new respirators, and the importer is a company from Srebrenica that deals with fruit and vegetable processing. Respirators cost 10.5 million BAM, which some say is too high.
