Bosnian, Croatian investigators identify Bosnian, Chinese cash smugglers

The Croatian and Bosnian prosecutorial authorities have identified at least ten Bosnian and Chinese nationals involved in the smuggling of about 15 million euros in cash.

A number of perpetrators, identified during an investigation that had lasted for months, were arrested on Monday morning.

Investigators established that a group of Chinese nationals doing business in Bosnia and Herzegovina had over a longer period of time smuggled cash from the country to Croatia and to other countries.

At least 15 million euros is believed to have been taken out of the country this way.

Since the Chinese suspects avoided transferring the money through banks, investigators suspect money laundering and tax fraud.


The investigation covered at least ten persons and several companies
