  • Bosnian imam convicted in sex abuse case

    Convicted religious leader blames media campaign

    A court in central Bosnia sentenced an imam on Friday to 18 months in jail for sexually abusing a girl during religious classes, the first such conviction of a Muslim religious official in the Balkan country.

    Resad Omerhodzic was accused of taking female students to a remote mountainous village and abusing them sexually. A family of one girl filed charges against him.

    "This is a conspiracy against me," Omerhodzic said after leaving the courtroom in Travnik flanked by his supporters.

    "I was sentenced ... because of a media campaign." His lawyers said they would appeal.

    Nobody from the girl's family was available for comment after the verdict.
