Press Release

Two persons acquitted for money laundering

10 December 2012

A mixed panel of one EULEX judge and two Kosovo judges, presided over by the EULEX judge at the District Court of Prizren acquitted Resmije Osmani and Gëzim Rexhaj charged with the criminal offences of money laundering, tax evasion, smuggling of goods and misuse of economic authorization. The defendants were accused of having used the company “Petrol – Nol” in Prizren to commit the mentioned crimes.

The District Court Panel acquitted both Osmani and Rexhaj because it did not find evidence that would support the charges. The panel argued that the personal data of Osmani and Rexhaj had been misused to commit the offences included in the indictment.

The case was prosecuted by a Kosovo prosecutor from the Special Prosecution Office of Kosovo (SPRK).
