bus ticket for this year's Berlin film festival
A Bosnian Roma actor who won a Silver Bear acting award at the Berlin film festival in 2013 says he has sold his trophy because he could no longer feed his family.

Nazif Mujic Cheap Minnesota Twins Jerseys , 47, was the toast of Bosnia when he won the award for playing himself in the movie An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker.

The film, which tells the true story of Mujic's fight for medical treatment for his wife after she suffered a miscarriage, also won the Jury Grand Prix at the Berlin festival.

But the success did not translate into wealth for Mujic, who returned to his old job gathering scrap metal for a few euros a day, and now he has been forced to part with his Silver Bear.

"First I sold an old car Cheap Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys , then some personal items, and then it was the bear's turn," Mujic told AFP by telephone from his isolated and poverty-stricken hamlet of Svatovac in northern Bosnia.

He said the decision to sell the trophy was "very difficult" but "my children had eaten almost nothing for three days."

At the end of December he offered the trophy in an internet post, asking 5,000 euros ($5,260) for it. He accepted 4 Cheap Miami Marlins Jerseys ,000 euros from the landlord of a local bar, Senadin Cosic.

Cosic said he would offer the bear to a museum.

"I am not a collector and I bought the statuette mainly to help Nazif. He is a sick man who cannot work and must feed his three children," he said.

Despite returning to a hero's welcome after the festival, Mujic quickly fell back into anonymity and poverty and had an application for asylum in German rejected in 2014.

He has been on insulin for diabetes for three years and says his family still gets by on his scrap collection, for which he earns six or seven marks (around $3.50) a day.

With the money from the trophy Mujic has been able to pay off debts he owed for electricity and groceries.

He has also bought a bus ticket for this year's Berlin film festival in February, saying he wants to tell the story of his family since winning the award.

He also plans to make a new asylum application in Germany.

"I hope that it will be accepted. I just want my children to live a normal life Cheap Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys ," he said.

Up to 75,000 Roma live in Bosnia, but according to the local NGO Atlantic Initiative only five percent of them have official employment.

In 2016, Human Rights Watch said Roma remain "the most vulnerable group" in Bosnia, facing "widespread discrimination in employment, education Cheap Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Jerseys , and political representation."

Chinese authorities will cooperate with Indonesia to confiscate more than $500 million of ill-gotten assets illegally transferred to China by corrupt Indonesian banking officials.

Under the Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters between China and Indonesia that took effect in 2006, the Ministry of Justice will "give support to the Indonesian judicial authorities in the areas of financial intelligence exchanges and the collection of evidence," said Zhang Sujun, vice-minister of justice.

After receiving their formal documents to request judicial assistance, Chinese judicial authorities will conduct further investigations and offer Indonesian officials evidence to help them recover the illegal proceeds, he said.

"Once solid evidence identifies assets as dirty money Cheap Kansas City Royals Jerseys , we will seize the funds and freeze the accounts," said Zhang Xiaoming, deputy-director of China Anti-Money Laundering Monitoring and Analysis Center at the People's Bank of China.

Zhang Sujun's remarks came in response to a request for judicial assistance made by Yasonna H. Laoly, minister of the Indonesian Ministry of Laws and Human Rights, during the 54th Annual Session of the Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization, held in Beijing from Monday to Thursday.

The case dates to 2008 Cheap Houston Astros Jerseys , when the global financial crisis gripped Asian countries, and the Indonesian government asked the Indonesian Bank to invest $565 million in the Indonesian Century Bank to avoid bankruptcy and the collapse of its banking system.

According to Indonesian judicial authorities, senior managers of the Indonesian Bank allegedly abused their power to help others embezzle the assets and transfer the proceeds to Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland through money laundering.

In December 2013, Boediono, vice-president of Indonesia and at the time the chairman of the Indonesian Bank, was impeached by members of the Indonesian Congress on suspicion of graft.

"Corruption Cheap Detroit Tigers Jerseys , crime and money laundering have posed serious threats to economic development and social stability," Laoly said, adding that Indonesia will strengthen judicial cooperation with China to recover the assets.

According to Zhang Xiaoming, the anti-money-laundering center will monitor suspicious financial transactions coming in and going out of China to fight corruption.

China has signed bilateral judicial assistance agreements on criminal matters with 52 countries and regions, including the US, Canada Cheap Colorado Rockies Jerseys , Japan and France, and 46 of them have officially taken effect.

Transfer curb

China's authorities will initiate a nationwide campaign to prevent corrupt officials from illegally transferring their ill-gotten assets overseas through offshore companies and underground banks, the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said on Thursday.

The authorities include the CCDI, the Ministry of Public Security, the Supreme People's Procuratorate, the Supreme People's Court and the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.

In recent years Cheap Cleveland Indians Jerseys , the US, Canada and other Western countries have become popular destinations for fleeing corrupt officials who transfer thousands of millions of yuan through money laundering, sa. Wholesale Authentic Jerseys   Wholesale Sports Jerseys   Wholesale Hats   Cheap T-shirts China   Cheap NBA T-shirts   Cheap Hoddies China   Cheap College Hats   Cheap Soccer Hoddies   Cheap Adidas NHL Hats   Cheap Nike NFL Hats
