The director of the Intelligence and Security Agency in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Osman Mehmedagic, was arrested on Wednesday, the Sarajevo Canton Ministry of Internal Affairs confirmed.
The Bosnian prosecution said that the suspect Osman Mehmedagic was deprived of his liberty on her orders, reports the Balkan Service of Radio Free Europe.
The prosecutor’s office said Mehmedagic was suspected of criminal offenses: abuse of position or authority, forgery of documents and money laundering.
Members of the Sarajevo Canton Interior Ministry have been raiding the premises of the Bosnian Intelligence and Security Agency since early July.
The raid was carried out by order of the Bosnian Court, in the case known as the “Diploma”.
In 2019, Mehmedagic had his 2007 diploma revoked by the Faculty in Banja Luka.
He then presented two degrees – from the American University and the Faculty of Law in Sarajevo.
The prosecution has launched an investigation, as Mehmedagic did not previously include the American University degree in his biography. / rel
