BBC Monitoring European. London: May 9, 2008.
Excerpt from report by Bosnia-Hercegovina Federation public TV, on 5 May
[Host Bakir Hadziomerovic] On last night's [Bosnian] Federation Television prime-time news, it was reported that the OHR [Office of the High Representative] anti-corruption team was completing an extensive investigation against several individuals involved in economic crime, aiding war criminals and terrorist activities worldwide as well as individuals involved in the wide network of construction mafia. Based on reliable information, tonight we are revealing the names of the people whose illegal, criminal and terrorist activities have already been proven by the anti-corruption team.
According to exclusive confirmations [that we have received], the investigation conducted by OHR experts concerns Hasan Cengic, member of the SDA [Party of Democratic Action] Main Board and a person who during the aggression against our country was the master of the TWRA [Vienna-based Muslim charity suspected of helping smuggle arms into Bosnia and channelling funds to radical Islamists] donor chest. In addition to Cengic's criminal undertakings involving donated funds worth several million, which "60 Minutes" has repeatedly reported on in detail, the anti-corruption team has allegedly come into possession of a document in which Hasan Cengic personally signed a money transfer intended for the Al-Qai'dah 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.
[Passage omitted: on other investigations]
According to reliable and confirmed information from diplomatic quarters, the anti-corruption team will soon submit all the gathered documentation proving brutal criminality as well as involvement in terrorist activities and in the hiding of war criminals to the B-H [Bosnia-Hercegovina] prosecutor's office special department for organized crime, after which arrests and trials of those responsible will ensue.
