The Slovenian referee has called his attendance at a business lunch in the Bosnian city of Bijeljina "my biggest mistake" after he was allowed home on Friday following a raid in which police arrested a gang of people on suspicion of carrying cocaine and firearms and pimping prostitutes.
Purported footage from the scene, posted by BN TV, showed several men sitting with their arms tied behind their backs near a selection of guns, as well as clips of women modeling for photoshoots and drinking champagne in glamorous settings as part of a ring allegedly led by Tijana Maksimovic.
"We had nothing to do with it," Vincic told Vecer, saying that the footage of the arrests, when police also reportedly recovered around $11,000 in cash, had been "shown too dramatically."
"There were no orgies. I didn't see any guns.
"I have my own company. I was in Bosnia and Herzegovina for a business meeting. I accepted an invitation to lunch, which turned out to be my biggest mistake. I regret it.
"I was sitting at a table with my company when all of a sudden the police came and what happened, happened. I have nothing to do with the group that was arrested and detained, and nor do my business partners.
"The police took us as witnesses. When it turned out that we didn't even know them, we were allowed to go."
A report in Slovenian outlet 24 Sata had claimed that Vincic had planned to "use the sexual services" provided by Maksimovic – also known as Tijana Ajfon.
The lover of high fashion was shown working out in the gym and taking selfies in a mirror as part of the video from the raid linked to the glamorous centerfold model. RT
