novinar / Journalist

Preiskovalni novinar iz Bosne in Hercegovine ter sodelavec spletnega portala Žurnal je avtor dveh dokumentarcev: v enem razkriva, kam izginjajo finančna sredstva za žrtve genocida v Srebrenici, v drugem pa korupcijo Mirsada Kukića, enega najvplivnejših politikov v Bosni.

Za Vladarja iz podzemlja sta s sodelavcem in soavtorjem zgodbe Davorjem Obrdaljem letos prejela nagrado za preiskovalno novinarstvo, ki jo v sodelovanju z Mirovnim inštitutom podeljuje Evropska unija novinarjem držav kandidatk za vstop v EU. Film je tako dosegel širše občinstvo, kljub temu da ga nobena od bosanskih lokalnih televizij ni želela predvajati.

Avdić je za prispevek Islamski terorizem, eno od letošnjih oddaj rubrike 24 ur Fokus, preiskoval novačenje in radikalizacijo islamskih skrajnežev v Bosni.

 

Avdo Avdić is an investigative journalist from Bosnia and Herzegovina. He works for Žurnal online magazine and is the author of two documentaries: the first is revealing  where  the money for survivors of Srebrenica is disappearing; the second is dealing with corruption of Mirsad Kukić, one of the most influential Bosnian politicians. For the latter Avdić and Davor Obrdalj, the coauthor of The ruler from the underground, won this year’s prize for investigative journalism, awarded by the European Union to journalists from candidate countries. This was an opportunity for the documentary to reach a wider audience, since none of the Bosnian local television stations wanted to air the story.
