The Director of the Intelligence and Security Agency, Osman Mehmedagic, was handed over to the jurisdiction of the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina, after being questioned in the premises of the Ministry of the Interior of the Sarajevo Canton.
Mehmedagic was handed over to the acting prosecutor for further jurisdiction.
Members of the Sarajevo Canton Ministry of the Interior arrested Mehmedagic yesterday on suspicion of committing crimes of abuse of office or authority, forgery of documents and money laundering.
Investigators are checking and alleging that Mehmedagic falsified the diploma with which he applied for the position of OSA director, and the way in which he bought two residential buildings in Sarajevo is also suspicious.
Half an hour before he was taken to the detention facility of the Canton Sarajevo Ministry of Interior, inspectors and construction experts completed a search of his property in Sarajevo.
The determination of the value of the house of the director of OSA was also done because Mehmedagic is charged with money laundering during the purchase in Sarajevo.
The reason for suspicion is that Mehmedagic did not withdraw the money with which he bought the house from the bank account.
