Slobodna Bosna (English: Free Bosnia) is an investigative weekly news magazine based in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Its frequent investigations of corruption have led politicians to sue the editor-in-chief Senad Avdić. On 23 June 1999, Sarajevo Municipal Court sentenced Avdić to a two-month suspended jail term on charges of criminal libel. This led to the Committee to Protect Journalists to condemn the conviction and sentencing of Senad Avdic on criminal libel charges as a violation of all international norms of press freedom.[1]

However it is alleged by the rival Bosnian newsmagazine, BH Dani, that Senad Avdić was an informer known as Šćepo who worked for Serb secret police, where he established connections, which he exploited in his later editorial work. Slobodna Bosna became substantially unpopular among Bosnian Muslim community after its editor promoted a book by Dominik Ilijašević Como, an ethnic Croat convicted of war crimes committed on Bosnian Muslim civilians in Kiseljak municipality by Croat forces during the 1992–94 Croat-Bosniak war.[2]
