Indictment Confirmed at the Mitrovica Basic Court

12 November 2014

12 November, 2014

Yesterday, an international judge rejected as ungrounded the requests by the defence to dismiss the indictment filed with the Mitrovica Basic Court against five defendants. Three defendants are accused of aggravated and attempted aggravated murder whereas the other two defendants are accused of the incitement to commit these crimes. Furthermore, one defendant is accused of war crimes.

The court rejected the objections to the admissibility of evidence entered by the defence as ungrounded. All evidence in the case file was found to be admissible.

The defence has five days to appeal the court’s ruling.
