The High Court in Serbia’s Uzice accepted the plea agreement and decided to release Salko Zildzic, am MP from Bosnia’s Federation (FBiH) entity, from custody so he can return home.

A High Court Judge from Užice told N1 that Zildzic was sentenced to house arrest for one year with electronic monitoring. Also, the gun, for which he was arrested, was taken from him.

“According to the Criminal Code of Bosnia and Herzegovina, it is possible to swap the house arrest sentence with a fine,” Zildzic's lawyer, Ljubisa Radulovic, confirmed earlier for N1.

The Higher Public Prosecutor's Office from Uzice previously stated that it issued an order to conduct an investigation against Zildzic, “due to the existence of a well-founded suspicion that he committed the criminal offence of illegal production, possession, carrying and trafficking of weapons and explosive substances”, based on Serbia’s Criminal Code.

Zildzic was stopped at a Bajina Basta border crossing in Serbia, on his way to meet an acquaintance when the Serbian Border Police discovered a firearm in his vehicle for which he had a Bosnian permit for possession and carry.
