The first-instance disciplinary commission for prosecutors of the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina (HJPC BiH) reached a decision removing Diana Kajmaković from the position of Deputy Chief Prosecutor of the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina, starting from the day of the decision, October 31, until the final conclusion of the disciplinary proceedings initiated by the disciplinary action of the Office of the Disciplinary Prosecutor on October 21.
The HJPC has suspended Deputy Chief Prosecutor, Diana Kajmaković, who was recently blacklisted by the United States over alleged involvement in corruption.
Kajmaković, who served as Deputy Chief Prosecutor of BiH, was suspended by the first-instance disciplinary commission of the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council (HJPC), on a request submitted by the Disciplinary Prosecutor’s Office.
The decision is valid until the final conclusion of the disciplinary proceedings initiated against Kajmaković. The commission determined that allowing Kajmaković to continue serving the post during the proceedings would threaten the credibility of the said judicial institution.
With this decision, the First Instance Disciplinary Commission of the HJPC of Bosnia and Herzegovina in no way prejudges or can influence the outcome of this disciplinary proceeding.
The appeal does not postpone the execution of the decision on temporary removal, it is stated in the statement.
