08 March 2012

Last night (7 March) the pre-trial judge at Mitrovica District Court, ordered restrictive measures for three individuals arrested in the Municipality of Vushtrri/ Vučitrn on 06 March 2012. The order prohibits them from approaching the other defendants in the case, as well as approaching officials and the offices of the municipality. The fourth arrested individual was released on the order of the prosecutor.

All four individuals continue to remain under investigation related to various criminal offices including Unlawful Occupation of Real Property, Abusing Official Position or Authority, Trading in influence, and Organised Crime.

The EULEX prosecutor from Kosovo’s Special Prosecution Office (SPRK), who is leading the investigation, is considering appealing against the decision not to detain on remand one of the four individuals.

The searches and the arrests in this case were conducted by Kosovo Police officers from the Anti-Corruption Task Force.
