Bosnian Police Arrests Media Mogul and Former Minister

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Bosnian police have arrested a Bosnian media mogul and former security minister who is under suspicion of obstructing justice.

Prosecutors said that Fahrudin Radoncic was arrested Monday and that three locations were raided in a search for evidence.

The arrest is linked to last week's arrest of the incumbent secretary of the security ministry, Bakir Dautbasic, who is suspected of obstructing the investigation against an alleged drug lord who is on trial in Kosovo and who apparently ran his business from Sarajevo.

Dautbasic is accused of trying — together with a woman who was also arrested — to persuade a witness to leave Radoncic out of her statements in the case against Naser Keljmendi, who is charged with murder, organized crime and the sale and production of drugs.
