Police in Bosnia’s Federation (FBiH) entity detained on Tuesday four people suspected of organised crime and abuse of power as members of a criminal group allegedly organised by Pramod Mittal, the former President of the Steering Board of one of Bosnia’s biggest exporters, coke producer ‘GIKIL’.

Police raided several locations in Ljubuski and Posusje, as well as the premises of GIKIL (Global Ispat Koksna Industrija Lukavac).

Mittal was arrested alongside two of his associates, Indian nationals, in July 2019. He was accused of syphoning some 21 million Bosnian Marks from GIKIL which ended up in the accounts of his company GSHL.

Mittal was released after he paid €1.5 million in bail.

The four detained on Tuesday are suspected of knowingly conducting activities which would result in Mittal unlawfully acquiring full control over the assets of GIKIL although he was subject to measures prohibiting any business activities at the company. This also allegedly resulted in an “enormously increased income” for them throughout 2019.

“After the raids, Ivana Bunoza and Mate Pavkovic, members of the Steering Board of GIKIL since January 2017, Ivan Vuksic, who is since September 2019 the illegally named trustee of company GSHL (which co-owns GIKIL) and the secretary of GIKIL, Erna Mehmedovic, were apprehended,” the Prosecutor’s Office of the Tuzla Canton said.
