Prosecutors of the Prosecutor's Office of B&H, conducting a financial investigation, came to the information that the director of ISA B&H Osman Mehmedagić Osmica, who is already on trial in the Court of B&H for abuse of office, paid 116,000 marks in cash to Šaćir Čedić, owner of "Vatra" cafe chains in Sarajevo, for the house he bought from him in 2017.
What he stated in the Prosecutor's Office of B&H
Due to these circumstances, Čedić was recently questioned by the Prosecutor's Office of B&H.
Prosecutors previously obtained information based on the financial investigation, which was conducted by the State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA) on the order of this institution, that Čedić sold the house of 94.40 square meters, which is located at Posavska Street no. 22, to Mehmedagić for 116,000 KM.
But there was no trace of money from Mehmedagić's bank accounts. It was suspected that Mehmedagić paid for the house in cash, which Čedić, as unofficially confirmed to us, admitted to prosecutors and investigators.

He said in his statement that he received cash from Mehmedagić on three or four occasions, more precisely all 116,000 KM under a contract that was signed and notarized in 2017. This whole "operation" ended from January to May 2017. The investigation also established that Mehmedagić did not withdraw the money he handed over to Čedić in cash from his bank account.
By the way, Šaćir Čedić is a very close friend of the Izetbegović family. He is the husband of Muvedeta Čedić-Butmir, one of the closest associates of Sebija Izetbegović, who became known to the public when her annual salary of 106,224 KM was announced.
Now the question is where Mehmedagić got so much money in cash from, regardless of whether it is, possibly, money laundering. The question is also how much tax he paid on this property, which was almost in a devastated condition, and now there is a swimming pool within it.
In addition, prosecutors obtained information that Mehmedagić paid money to Asim Sarajlić, an SDA delegate in the House of Peoples of Bosnia and Herzegovina and a member of the Joint Commission for Supervision of ISA, whose director is Mehmedagić for an Audi Q5 car he bought for his wife Amela Šehović.

Namely, the Audi Q5, which she bought from Sarajlić, has been in her name since May 27th, 2019. The investigation established that the price under the contract was 62,000 KM, of which 42,000 KM were transferred from the account. There was no trace of 20,000 KM until the interrogation of Sarajlić in the Prosecutor's Office. He also admitted that he received 20,000 KM, which were not paid through the account. In this case as well, the investigation determined that Mehmedagić did not withdraw those 20,000 KM from his bank account.
Who did the property appraisal
We remind you that our paper announced back in 2018. that the director of ISA hid from whom he bought two properties in Sarajevo and at what price, whether the payment was made from his current account to the seller's account and whether the FB&H Tax Administration performed an appraisal of the real estate, and whether he paid the real estate transfer tax.
