Son receives threats as father testifies about alleged corruption in judiciary Izvor: N1

Nermin Alesevic's son reported receiving threats by an unknown man, while his father testified in the alleged corruption case involving Bosnia's top State judicial official, Milan Tegeltija.

"An unknown man approached his son in front of their family house asking where his father was. He said his father wasn't home and asked why he wanted to know, to which the man said he would know when the time is right," the Una-Sana Canton Interior Ministry's spokesperson Ale Siljdedic told N1. "That was all the conversation they had, based on which Alesevic's son thought the man could harm his family in some way."

The spokesperson noted that there were never any direct threats and thatAlesevic's son described the man and the car he drove, adding that police will focus its attention to similar incidents, given the seriousness of the case.

Bosnian investigative news portal Zurnal published a text on Tuesday, saying they have a video allegedly showing Nermin Alesevic, a businessman from Bosnia's northern town of Velika Kladusa, giving some €1,000 to an officer called Marko Pandza, from the State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA) – Bosnia's special police.

Zurnal wrote that Pandza was allegedly supposed to give the money to Milan Tegeltija, the head of the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council which appoints judges and prosecutors and disciplines them, who would then look into Alesevic's case.

Tegeltija denied all Zurnal's claims, saying the video shows him saying he cannot do anything in the said case.

Alesevic was questioned at the SIPA headquarters on Friday after the Prosecution opened a case into the alleged bribery.
