The individuals, who were arrested today, are suspected to be involved in the buying and selling of illegal weapons and the transportation of (these) weapons from Turkey and Albania into Kosovo and from Kosovo into Albania and of forming an organized group, with other suspects, with the aim to supply, transport, produce, exchange or sell weapons, without authorization.

The arrests and searches were ordered by the pre-trial judge at the Prizren District Court.

Weapons and ammunition were found during today’s searches.
