A retired lawyer, a former court clerk, and a real estate broker were sentenced in Sarajevo to a total of seven years and three months in prison for forging documents. The other five defendants were acquitted.
The FBiH Ministry For Issues Of The Veterans And Disabled Veterans Of The Defensive-Liberation War refused to share reports on the spending of funds allocated for employment through veterans’ co-ops with CIN, even though the Sarajevo Cantonal Court had previously ruled that such a decision was illegal.
The Sarajevo Cantonal Court passed two judgments against federal ministries for non-compliance with the Law on Freedom of Access to Information. These are the CIN’s 13th and 14th wins for public data, transparency, and accountability of institutions.
The Cantonal Court in Sarajevo has handed down a final verdict to former court clerk Ekrem Bezdrob. He was sentenced to eight months in prison for accepting gifts and other forms of benefits.
