A EULEX confirmation judge confirmed the indictment against K.P., a former judge and A.R., an attorney, both charged with the criminal offence of abuse of official position or authority. The confirmation judge also declared all evidence referenced in the indictment as admissible.

K.P. is alleged to have committed his offence in 2005. He is accused of abusing his position as a judge to obtain material benefit by manipulating the cases of claimants towards an insurance company. K.P. allegedly did this with the cooperation of the defendant A.R..

The EULEX confirmation judge dismissed the indictment against K.P. for the criminal offence of issuing unlawful court decisions and against A.R. for the criminal offence of breach of trust.

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