Judgment delivered in Predrag Vidic Case over Organized Crime

Having held a guilty plea agreement consideration hearing, on 28 May 2019 the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina delivered a judgment in the case of Predrag Vidić, finding the accused Predrag Vidić guilty of the criminal offense of Organized Crime under Article 250(4) of the Criminal Code of Bosnia and Herzegovina (CC BiH) as read with the criminal offense of Forgery of a Document under Article 373(1) of the CC of BiH Federation (CC FBiH) and Deception in Getting Loans (Credits) or Other Grants under Article 268(3) of the CC FBiH, as read with Article 29 of the CC BiH. The Court imposed a suspended sentence of 2 (two) years of imprisonment, while ordering that it should not be executed unless the accused commits another criminal offense within 3 (three) years of the date when the judgment became final.

The accused Predrag Vidić was found guilty that, together with B.K, B.V, Č.M, Emir Kazić, Đ.B, Š.H, Saladin Ribić, Stjepan Bojo, Dragan Kenjić, B.O. and U.R., during the 2010-2011 period, in Kiseljak, Sarajevo, Sanski Most and East Sarajevo, with the aim of obtaining illegal property gain, B.K. concocted a plan to deceive the legal entity NLB leasing d.o.o. Sarajevo and make a profit by concluding a financial leasing contract with the foregoing leasing company, by which to finance a fictitious purchase of movable property – machines, which would in fact not be bought at all given that no such machines actually exist as the subject of purchase. After financing the purchase through the leasing company, B.K. would, with the help of his connections, realize his plan by having the buyer of machines as the leasing user fail to settle his leasing obligations, so that in order to carry out his plan B.K., together with his brother B.V., organized a group for organized crime, which was joined by a number of physical and legal entities, including the accused Predrag Vidić.
