Amel Sejfovic was sentenced to 10 years in the Cantonal Court in Sarajevo for organizing a criminal group that allowed him to escape from the Sarajevo Penitentiary. Amel Sejfovic’s escape happened on September 3, 2017, and he was arrested on September 11 at the location between Visoko and Kiseljak, Vijesti.ba news portal reports.
According to the instructions of Sejfovic, who devised the escape plan, the members of the group communicated via encrypted mobile phones all the time and agreed on the details of the escape.
