Bosnia Press Review - January 25, 2013

Selimovic family lost three companies. Nine ministers against Nermin Niksic. No one investigates 35 million euro fraud.



Company Raiffeisen Leasing took over three companies owned by Hilmo and Mujo Selimovic because those tycoons, who are close to the Party of Democratic Action, SDA, were not returning millions KM of loans, Dnevni avaz daily learned.


Federation entity government refused to put the no-confidence vote to them on the agenda. Prime Minister Nermin Niksic said that the majority of ministers, nine of them, voted against it. He hoped that the government will be reconstructed in the next 15-20 days. The initiative was in the government because ministers are divided in two blocks.


Bosnian Prosecutor's Office is ignoring a criminal report on the company Lijanovici from Siroki Brijeg which made tax frauds worth more than 35 million euro. No one investigated the case for years. The majority owner of the company is Jerko Ivankovic Lijanovic, Federatuion entity agriculture minister.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts of the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
