"Denies that it is a database of the Ministry of Security. These data have not any part of the information base of the ministry. Especially it is not a secret or hidden data, as tendentiously presented," the brief statement to the media in Sarajevo.

The Ministry of Security of BiH point out that all the data now published Croatian Anonymous were available earlier, and published in the media and on social networks.

Alleged personal information and photos dozens of people from BiH, for which Anonymous claim that Islamist extremists and that their identity BiH authorities deliberately hide from Friday are available on social networks.
