The Basic Court of Pristina in a panel composed of two EULEX judges and one local judge presided over by a EULEX judge rejected the charge of abuse of official position against A.T. because the prosecutor in this case orally withdrew the charge against this defendant.

The trial against the other seven defendants in this case, among whom I.T., former Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Health and B.B., former Minister of Health, is continuing.

The case is prosecuted by a EULEX prosecutor from Kosovo's Special Prosecution Office (SPRK).
