Two persons in detention for illegal sale of weapons

05 shkurt 2013

A EULEX pre-trial judge at the Basic Court of Peja ordered detention on remand for one month against two suspects charged with unauthorized supply, transportation, production, exchange and sale of weapons and unauthorized ownership, control, possession or use of weapons. Detention on remand was not ordered for the charges of organized crime and smuggling of goods.


The two suspects were arrested Monday morning during a joint operation carried out by the EULEX Organized Crime Investigation Unit (OCIU) and the Kosovo Special Police Unit (ROSU). During the operation, the police searched two premises and confiscated several firearms and rounds of ammunition.

The case is being investigated by a EULEX special prosecutor from the Special Prosecution Office of Kosovo (SPRK).
