Our colleagues at Transparency International in Bosnia-Herzegovina (TI BiH) have been forced to temporarily suspend operations and evacuate their office following accusations leveled by Prime Minister Milorad Dodik that they are involved in organized crime.
At Global Integrity, we’ve had the pleasure of working with TI-BiH directly and find the accusations outrageous. Professionalism and impartiality have been hallmarks of the chapter and we hope the charges are dismissed as soon as possible. This entire episode points to how far Bosnia still has to go in terms of state-building and cementing democratic gains.
