5.10.2023 | News

The Indirect Taxation Authority, General Director Mr. Zoran Tegeltija and the Chief Prosecutor of the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H), Milanko Kajganić signed a Memorandum of Operational Cooperation today in Sarajevo. The aim of the Memorandum is to ensure a faster exchange of data and even better cooperation between the two institutions in the fight against organised crime, financial crime and corruption. The conclusion of this document is in accordance with the peer-review recommendations as part of the European integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which recommend the strengthening of operational cooperation between institutions that fight against crimes in the field of financial crime, tax evasion, economic crime and corruption. The conclusion will enable faster access to the records kept by the ITA of B&H, and what is especially important in situations where, in order to protect the interests of the investigation and the case, quick and efficient handling and access to data is required. Every year, the ITA submits a large number of reports to the Prosecutor’s Office of B&H on the existence of grounds for suspicion that criminal offenses in the field of indirect taxes have been committed, and the Prosecutor’s Office of B&H and the Special Department for Organised Crime, Economic Crime and Corruption handle a large number of cases related to tax evasion, illegal traffic of excise goods and other criminal acts in this area, and it is expected that this Memorandum will become a useful tool for efficient work.
