Nine people have been detained across Bosnia and Herzegovina in connection with a $6.3 million corruption investigation, police have said.

The group, including broadcasters, advertisers and officials from Eronet, one of the country’s biggest telecommunications companies, were detained under an operation codenamed Gibraltar, the State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA) said on Thursday.

The nine held during the operation ordered by the Bosnia and Herzegovina Prosecutor’s Office were accused of organized crime, abuse of office, tax evasion, money laundering and illegal money transfers causing a loss of an estimated €5 million ($6.3 million) from the state budget, according to prosecutors.

Croatian and Slovenian police and judicial officials aided the investigation.
