Railways Derailed

Story 3: Railroad debts likely to cost taxpayers

Wasted spending, unneeded loans and expensive purchases may leave BiH citizens in debt for years for a rail system that doesn’t serve them well. 


Story 5: FBiH Railroad: Privatizing the Profits

The part of the FBiH Railroad that operates the trains and lucrative freight business has been privatized for a small fraction of its worth. But railroad officials have not bothered to tell anyone. The move deprives the people of BiH money back from their huge investment planned for the railroad to fix tracks and other decaying infrastructure. 


Story 7: Slovenian Company Pushes Out Bosnian Owners and Investors
