The trial of Novalić and other defendants for the purchase of 100 ventilators from China at a price of 10.5 million marks continued today with the interrogation of Hasan Gnibegović, former head of the Office of the Prime Minister Fadil Novalić.

Today, the Prosecution finished questioning this witness, who last week in the Court of B&H did not remember anything about most of the prosecutor's questions.

They deleted messages

The most interesting part of today's hearing are the conversations and communications of Edita Kalajdžić and Hasan Ganibegović in the viber group "Gensek". In the media, when the chase regarding the ventilators was initiated, Hasan Ganibegović was instructed that he, the Prime Minister and Edita Kalajdžić delete all messages in this viber group.

Ganibegović said today that he had partially deleted some of the messages.

When asked by prosecutor Džermin Pašić that "Seb" was mentioned in the "Gensek" group, Ganibegović explained that it was Sebija Izetbegović, the director of KCUS in Sarajevo.

She is mentioned in the group as "Seb".

Ganibegović and Kalajdžić had a conversation on April 23, 2020, when Ganibegović received a contract from Fahrudin Solak and "Silver Raspberry" on the purchase of ventilators. Kalajdžić forwarded the contract, emphasizing that the contract was harmful, that the deadlines had not been met and that the contract should be terminated.

The communication from March 28, 2020 in the viber group "Gensek" where Edita Kalajdžić addressed Ganibegović is interesting:

- Seb's calling. Ventilators are bad. Horror. We are in a huge problem. If that is true and it is surely.

Thank you note was prepared

Ganibegović answers:

- Is this true what Kučuković says about killing people?

It is a communication that took place after the arrival of ventilators. Ganibegović continues:

- Bahra and the boss procured them. If Ćahta didn't get involved.

Kalajdžić answers:

Horror. And that letter was sent. Nobody asks anything. Everything needs to be torn.

Ganibegović later explained, at the insistence of prosecutor Pašić, which letter was in question. He said that it was a prepared thank you note to Fikret Hodžić and "Silver Raspberry" for buying such a large number of ventilators, which were necessary at the time.

Answering the question of Vasvija Vidović, Novalić's lawyer, Ganibegović said that in March and April last year, there was a lot of pressure on the Government of the Federation of B&H for the procurement of medical equipment and that no one else wanted to do that.

At the next hearing, scheduled for Friday, the defense will continue to question this witness.
