The former Vice-Chairman of the House of Peoples of the FBiH Parliament, Jasenko Tufekcic, signed a plea agreement with the Sarajevo Canton Prosecutor's Office, charging him with fraud in the service and forgery of an official document.
Tufekcic stated that he did so because it was impossible for him to conduct years-long court proceedings, as well as the impossibility of “speaking freely in public about corruption and criminality in Federation (FBiH) entity institutions.”
Jasenko Tufekcic is accused of submitting 355 official travel orders in which he entered false information from July 2011 to April 2017, while he was a delegate and Vice-Chair of the House of Peoples of the FBiH Parliament.
“… while using his political party’s official vehicle while writing in official travel orders that he was using his personal vehicle, despite not owning his own vehicle, nor did he pass a driving test. Although the accused had the right to use the official vehicle of the House of People, he refused it, because in that case he did not have the possibility to collect the transportation costs, but used the party's car and was paid some 40 thousand Bosnian marks (approx €20,000) for the travel orders he submitted to the Parliament, in which amount, the FBiH budget was damaged,” the indictment states.
