Three ITA BiH inspectors who were arrested on suspicion of blackmailing shop owners were released from the detention unit and placed under house arrest.
SIPA brought six ITA BiH inspectors for questioning on suspicion of abuse of position and accepting bribes, which CIN wrote about last year.
For two days, SIPA has been seizing documentation from the Indirect Taxation Authority of BiH in search of evidence in a criminal proceeding against inspectors who had been racketeering shopkeepers.
Some inspectors of the BiH Indirect Taxation Authority racketeer shopkeepers using a well-established mode of operation: they ask for money to turn a blind eye to their wrongdoings. Those who refuse to give bribes are illegally deprived of their goods.
