On April 1, in Bijelo Polje an explosive device was activated in front of family house of a journalist Sead Sadiković. In the explosion a car that did not belong to Sadiković and his family was damaged.
Sadiković said that the vehicle was parked in a place where he regularly, on a daily basis, parked his car.
On Monday, April 2, police identified and detained suspects, Ilhan and Hilmija Pepić from Rožaje. About twenty days later, the judge of the Basic Court in Bijelo Polje, Dragan Mrdak, pronounced the verdict against these two brothers for committing the criminal offense of “Illegal possession of weapons and explosive materials” in an endangering of security. Ilhan is sentenced to seven, and Hilmija is sentenced to four months in prison.
According to the police, it is suspected that the motive for this attack was a defamation of family Pepić member, Husnija Pepić with whom Sadiković had an interview at the end of last year in his show “Without Borders”. In the show Sadiković presented Pepić’s Museum, whose owner is Husnija, in an unusual and satirical manner. The show raised great public interest.
Sadiković claims that it is still necessary to find out who ordered the attack in this case.
