The Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina confirmed, on 30 December 2019, an indictment in the case of Obrad Radovanović et al. charging the accused Obrad Radovanović, Zahid Delić, Virsan Zolotić and Mate Delić with the commission of the criminal offense of Associating for the Purpose of Perpetrating Criminal Offenses under Article 249(2) of the Criminal Code of BiH (CC BiH) and the criminal offense of Accepting Gifts and Other Forms of Benefit under Article 217(1) of the CC BiH, as read with Articles 29 and 53 of the CC BiH.
The indictment alleges that the accused Obrad Radovanović had offered the informant “Fanatikos” at the State Investigation and Protection Agency to import the goods in a freight motor vehicle from Croatia to BiH, through the Šamac Border Crossing, without conducting any customs control of the goods and without payment of the related customs duties for the imported goods, and requested from “Fanatikos” in return a monetary gift in the amount of EUR 150.00.
On 23 February 2019, being aware that the accused Obrad Radovanović had already requested a monetary gift before, in the presence of the accused Zahid Delić and upon the arrival of undercover investigator “Dušan” and informant “Fanatikos”, who were entering the BiH customs area by a freight motor vehicle, the accused Virsan Zolotić and Mato Delić requested and received a monetary gift in the amount of EUR 150.00.
Thereupon, despite knowing that the goods subject to the customs control procedure were transported in the referenced vehicle, the accused let the vehicle pass further ahead without having conducted the customs control procedure concerning the goods imported.
