SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina), January 10 (SeeNews) - The U.S. Department of State said it has imposed sanctions against Milorad Dodik, the Serb member of Bosnia's collective presidency, as well as other former and current officials for alleged corruption.

The State Department imposed economic sanctions on Dodik and Alternativna Televizija (ATV), a media outlet under his control, due to which all of Dodik's and ATV's property in the United States, held directly or indirectly, will be blocked and reported to the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the State Department said in a statement last week.

Furthermore, former president of Bosnia's High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council (HJPC) Milan Tegeltija and the President of the Movement for Democratic Action (PDA) and parliamentary assembly representative Mirsad Kukic have been found to engage in and benefit from public corruption, due to which they are banned from entering the U.S.

In addition to Tegeltija and Kukic, the Department of State is also sanctioning Tegeltija’s spouse, Tijana Tegeltija.

The Serb Republic is one of two autonomous entities that form Bosnia and Herzegovina. The other entity is the Federation.
