A mixed panel of two local judges and one EULEX judge of the Basic Court of Pristina, presided over by the EULEX judge, found one person guilty of participation in the activities of an organised criminal group who intended to transfer at least 109 kg of cannabis sativa from Albania to EU countries. The defendant S.T. was sentenced to three years imprisonment.

In the same judgment S.T. was acquitted for two counts of unauthorized purchase, possession, distribution and sales of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances.

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