The Croatian and Bosnian prosecutorial authorities have identified at least ten Bosnian and Chinese nationals involved in the smuggling of about 15 million euros in cash.
A number of perpetrators, identified during an investigation that had lasted for months, were arrested on Monday morning.
Investigators established that a group of Chinese nationals doing business in Bosnia and Herzegovina had over a longer period of time smuggled cash from the country to Croatia and to other countries.

The investigation covered at least ten persons and several companies
