On 8 December, Rferl reported that Bosnia-Herzegovina’s top court has confirmed the indictment of Selmo Cikotic, the Balkan country’s security minister, who is accused of abusing his official position over the irregular sale of weapons and military equipment a decade ago when he held the post of defence minister.  He had been defence minister 2006-2012.  He is alleged to have deprived the state of about $5.6 million 2009-11 by unlawfully changing the terms of a contract for the sale of surplus outdated weapons, ammunition, and military equipment in order to favour the buyer, a Croatian company.

Any modest contributions for my time and ongoing expenses are welcomed!  I have a page where you can do so, and where one-off contributions start as low as $3, at
