At the headquarters of the Office of the European Public Prosecutor in Luxembourg, an agreement on cooperation was signed between the Office of the Chief European Prosecutor and the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The signatories were the Chief European Prosecutor of EPPO Laura Corduta Kovesi and the Chief Prosecutor of the Prosecutor’s Office of BiH Milanko Kajganić.

This agreement, which regulates and enables mutual cooperation, will enable, among other things, the formation of joint investigative teams in the fight against corruption, organized and cross-border crime.
