SARAJEVO, Bosnia (January 13,2008) - The fourth joint public information campaign of the EU Police Mission in Bosnia (EUPM) and the Bosnian police agencies will focus on the fight against organised crime, said EUPM Spokesperson Monja Koluder.

Its launch is foreseen for spring of 2008, and its aim, according to Koluder, is to raise awareness about the role citizens can play in the fight against organised crime.

More specifically, the campaign is aimed at informing the Bosnian citizens on the prevention of organised crime in Bosnia, the negative impact such activity has on society, and what is currently being done by both local police and the international community to address the issue.

“We are intending to address the issues of drug trafficking, arms trade, human trafficking, money laundering, car theft, corruption and intimidation of criminal justice actors, which all have an impact on the security and well-being of the Bosnian society,” Koluder stated.

“We want to encourage citizens take an active part in the fight against organized crime, creating thereby a safer environment,” Koluder said.
