A EULEX pre-trial judge at the Pristina Basic Court ordered house detention for the period of one month against five suspects and the measure of reporting to the police station once a week for a month against five other suspects. The judge also ordered the confiscation of travel documents for all ten individuals.

The suspects, who were arrested during an operation led by Kosovo Police, are being investigated for the criminal offences of accepting bribes, giving bribes, trading in influence, abuse of official position or authority, organized crime, incitement to abuse of official position and money laundering. The allegations against them relate to the making of an unlawful bid for land that was sold off by the Privatization Agency of Kosovo in 2009.

The case is being investigated by a EULEX Special Prosecutor from the Special Prosecution Office of Kosovo (SPRK).
