Police officers of the State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA) of Bosnia and Herzegovina apprehended former Dinamo football club boss Zdravko Mamic in Medjugorje on Thursday, learns N1.

SIPA officers acted upon Croatia's international warrant, which Bosnia's Interpol Office received on Wednesday.

Zdravko Mamic, the former Dinamo football club boss and incumbent advisor to the club, his brother Zoran, former Dinamo director Damir Vrbanovic and tax official Milan Pernar were found guilty before a competent court in Croatia of siphoning about 116 million kuna (€15.7 million) from Dinamo and defrauding the state budget of about 12.2 million kuna (€1.6 million) in unpaid taxes and surtaxes.

Speaking for N1 on Wednesday evening, Mamic said he would not return to Croatia and that he would battle for his innocence from Bosnia.

Zdravko Mamic was sentenced to six and a half years in prison, his brother Zoran to four years and 11 months, Pernar to four years and two months, and Vrbanovic to three years.
