The panel also modified the first instance verdict by re-qualifying the criminal offence. The remaining part of the first instance judgment – including the punishments – was left unchanged. The Supreme Court panel upheld detention on remand for the four defendants arguing that the reasons for detention continue to exist.

The case against A.S., V.D., D.S. and A.V. is related to the confiscation of about 89.5 kg of marijuana in April 2010 and several firearms and ammunition kept without necessary authorizations.

The case was prosecuted by a local district prosecutor from the Office of the State Prosecutor of Kosovo.
