SIPA: Bosnalijek shareholders bought its shares

On Friday, police officers of the State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA) filed a report on the perpetrated crimes and perpetrators against five individuals, one BiH citizen and four foreign nationals, as well as two foreign companies, to the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The report states that there are grounds for suspicion that the above-mentioned persons committed criminal offenses of organized crime in connection with crimes of abuse of office or powers and money laundering.

Namely, the investigation found that those persons during 2016 and 2017, acting contrary to the business interests of Bosnalijek company d. d. Sarajevo, transferred the claims of two foreign legal entities that duly performed their obligations, also to a foreign legal entity, which retained at least 3,600,000 KM, which was made possible by the conclusion of a contract on the transfer of claims and concealed by the performance of transactions between several European countries.

In the same period, the aforementioned persons used Bosnalijek’s multi-million dollar funds for the purchase of Bosnalijek shares, which they concealed by conducting transactions between the accounts of legal entities from six countries in total.
