Press Release

Man acquitted of murder

29 November 2012

A panel of three EULEX judges at the District Court of Mitrovice/Mitrovica acquitted Njazi Mula of murder, because it did not find him criminally liable for the criminal offence he had been charged with.

The panel found the defendant not guilty of murder due to a mistake of fact. Mula shot and killed Tafil Shabani after he mistakenly believed that the victim was attacking him and his colleague.

The case was prosecuted by a EULEX Public Prosecutor.
