Lawful arrest to prevent influencing witnesses

There is no violation of Article II(3)(d) of the Constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Article 5 paragraph 1(c) of the European Convention, in case where the court, in the proceedings to extend the detention of the appellants, established that there existed a justified fear that the appellants, by concealing or destroying evidence, would hinder the investigation, or where particular circumstances indicated that the appellants would try to influence witnesses or accomplices and where the circumstances under which the relevant criminal offences were committed amount to extreme circumstances where there was a real threat of serious public disorder, if the appellants were released.
