Prosecutors working on cases in the field of corruption, organized crime and economic crime participated in the training held on May 31 and June 1, 2018 in Banja Luka. In the focus of this specialist training were questions how to identify, collect and analyze electronic evidence, and to prepare a quality indictment based on this evidence.

"I am very pleased with the choice of trainers for this training. Bosnia and Herzegovina needs prosecutors who are specialized in the field of high-tech (cyber) crime, and therefore I am very pleased with the continuous training of this kind" said Republika Srpska (RS) Prosecutor Živana Bajić.

High-tech crime is a form of criminal behavior, where computer and computer networks are used both as a means and as a target for the commission of a criminal offense. Computer technology is being misused in various ways, and computer-related offenses include theft, evasion, and embezzlement.

The training which was attended by 28 prosecutors from the RS Prosecutor's Office and District Public Prosecutor's Offices (DPPO) Banja Luka, Doboj and Prijedor was organized by DPPO Banja Luka. The trainer was Branko Stamenkovic, Director of the Special Prosecutor's Office for High-Tech Crimes of the Republic of Serbia. The training organization was supported by USAID's Justice Project in BiH, in accordance with the identified needs of the prosecutor's offices, and within the framework of the implementation of partnership agreements between the Project and the aforementioned prosecutor's offices.
