Dzenana Selimovic, a police officer from the Bosnian northeastern town of Gradacac who is being linked to multiple murderer Nermin Sulejmanovic, has been suspended at order of the chief of the Tuzla Canton Police Administration.

Police chief Dzevad Korman confirmed speaking to N1 that Selimovic was suspended over her alleged connection with Sulejmanovic, the man who killed three persons last week including his partner, and then committed suicide.

Selimovic has just returned from her annual leave and immediately took sick leave.

Korman earlier said that all available information lead to the suspicion into Selimovic's ties with the “criminally active persons,” which means she breached disciplinary regulations.

“We are working on it. So only regarding that matter, nothing is linked to this latest case,” Korman said earlier.

Selimovic's attorney Bakir Hecimovic earlier told media that his client had no communication with Sulejmanovic.

“Media is lynching her with no ground. It is all ungrounded until the moment there are at least indications that she even had a contact with Sulejmanovic,” said the attorney, adding that the police officer did not escape to Italy but was on a vacation.

President of the Municipal Court Gradacac Slobodanka Kojic told media on Wednesday that judge Lejla Numanovic, who was deciding on non-molestation order for Sulejmanovic, after his partner Nizama Hecimovic reported him for domestic violence, did not issue the order because police delivered no evidence of the violence but only official record.

“She in no way participated in helping Nermin Sulejmanovic,” kojic stressed, adding that false information spread via social media which she assessed as “horrible.”

Asked if the judge could have issued the order based on the police report or asked the police to deliver the evidence, kojic replied that the police submitted a request that contained certain facts but they were not accompanied by evidence.

“All facts must be proven, there was no evidence here,” she said.
