(ANSA) - BELGRADE, DEC 5 - Selmo Cikotic, the former Defence Minister of Bosnia and Herzegovina, was sentenced to three years in prison today by a Sarajevo court for abuse of office. The judges accused Cikotic of abusing his official position between 2009 and 2011, favouring the Croatian company 'Scout' from Zagreb in the purchase of surplus weapons from Bosnia and Herzegovina, causing a loss to the state budget of nearly five million euros.
