Second instance Commission rejects disciplinary action against HJPC President Izvor: N1

The second instance Disciplinary Commission of Bosnia's top judicial institution confirmed on Friday the initial decision to not suspend or discipline the President of that institution, Milan Tegeltia, who is under fire over alleged corruption.

The Disciplinary Counsel's Office filed a complaint on May 31, against the President of the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council (HJPC) which appoints judges and prosecutors and disciplines them, asking that he be suspended pending the investigation into the alleged corruption scandal.

After the Commission rejected the Counsel's first complaint on June 3, the Counsel filed an appeal.

Bosnian investigative news portal Zurnal published a text last month, 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, 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 and announced he would sue Zurnal for slander.
