President of the Party of Democratic Action (SDA) Bakir Izetbegović and President of the Alliance for Better Future (SBB) Fahrudin Radončić met yesterday at the premises of the Presidency of B&H, after two high officials of SBB were arrested.
Izetbegović and Radončić met after the State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA) arrested Bakir Dautbašić, the long-term secretary of the Ministry of Security of B&H and the SBB candidate for the position of the minister of transportation and communications of B&H, on suspicion of obstruction of justice in criminal proceedings led by the Prosecutor’s Office of B&H and the Primary Court in Priština against Naser Keljmendi.
In the same action by the police, another member of SBB and a candidate of this political party for the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of FB&H on General elections 2014 Bilsena Šahman was also arrested.
It is still not known what the presidents of coalition parties were talking about at the meeting which ended at 1:45 p.m.
Radončić stated yesterday that he proposed Dautbašić as the only candidate of SBB for the minister of transportation and communications of B&H to the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of B&H Denis Zvizdić. However, analytics warn that Dautbašić will most probably not satisfy security checks for the ministerial post, given the existence of grounds for suspicion of involvement in the obstruction of a criminal investigation.
