Five defendants acquitted in the 'PTK case'

28 June 2013

The Basic Court of Pristina, in a panel composed of EULEX and Kosovo judges acquitted five defendants today in the so-called PTK case. Blerim Devolli, Shkelqim Devolli, Ismet Bojku, Shyqyri Haxha and Rexhe Gjonbalaj were acquitted from all charges against them.

The defendants were charged in the indictment for several offences, including entering into harmful contracts, falsifying documents as a special case and abusing official position. The court acquitted all defendants because it was not proven that they had committed the criminal offences they were charged with.
