Press Release

Man sentenced to 16 years for aggravated murder

04 July 2012

A mixed panel of two EULEX judges and one local judge at the District Court of Peja found Nazif Visoqi guilty for the criminal offences of aggravated murder and unauthorized ownership, control, possession or use of weapons. The defendant was sentenced to an aggregate punishment of 16 years of imprisonment.

The first instance court decided that there was enough evidence to convict Visoqi for the criminal offences he had been charged with. However, there were many mitigating factors which contributed to a more lenient punishment; one of them being the guilty plea of the accused.

Nazif Visoqi was found guilty of murdering Miodrag Komatina and injuring Dejan Bogicevic and Drasko Ojdanic because of a property dispute in the village of Dobrusha, Istog Municipality on 20 October 2011.

The case was prosecuted by a EULEX District Prosecutor.
