DHAKA: A European Union police mission in Bosnia ended on Saturday after a decade of training local police forces and overseeing law enforcement agencies that were rebuilt almost from scratch after the 1992-95 war.
The pullout of some 130 European Union Police Mission officials came as the small Balkan country is hoping to apply for EU membership this year, reports The Jerusalem Post.
Bosnia, which is lagging behind its west Balkan neighbours in the queue for EU membership, will have to show Brussels that its law enforcement officials are now capable of fighting widespread corruption and organised crime.
