A mixed panel of two EULEX judges and one local judge, presided over by a EULEX judge at the District Court of Pristina acquitted A.D. and A.D. charged with the criminal offences of aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder. A.D. and N.C. were charged with unauthorized ownership, control, possession or use of weapons.

The panel of judges acquitted the three defendants because it was not proven beyond a reasonable doubt that they had committed the criminal offences they were charged with.

A.D. and A.D. and in cooperation with another unknown person and the defendants B.H. and S.Q. (sentenced already) were accused of opening fire and killing N.B., S.B. and U.B. and seriously wounding B.B.. S.B. escaped unharmed from the incident which occurred in September 2007.

A.D. and N.C. were both found in possession of automatic weapons in September 2007 without proper authorizations.

The case was prosecuted by a local prosecutor of the SPRK.
