Indictment confirmed in human trafficking case

11 July 2012

A EULEX judge in the District Court of Mitrovica confirmed the indictment against Fatmir Peci filed by a EULEX prosecutor. The defendant is charged with trafficking in person, unlawful deprivation of liberty, facilitation of prostitution and light bodily harm.

The judge confirmed the indictment in its entirety and declared all the evidence admissible, with the exception of the house search for which there was no authorization from the pre-trial judge in the case file. This part of the evidence was declared inadmissible in a separate ruling on 29 June 2012.

Based on the admissible evidence, the confirmation judge deemed that there is a well-grounded suspicion that the defendant committed the criminal offences he is charged with.

The case is being prosecuted by a EULEX District prosecutor.
