On 18 December, a EULEX pre-trial judge at the District Court of Prizren ordered one month of detention on remand for a suspect in an organised crime case. The man is suspected of the Unauthorised Supply, Transportation, Production, Exchange and Sale of Weapons and Organised Crime.

The individual was arrested on Friday 16 December. He is alleged to be involved in importing weapons from Albania to be sold on the black market in Kosovo. Weapons were also allegedly being imported from Turkey into Kosovo, and then sold on in Albania.

The investigation is being led by a EULEX prosecutor from Kosovo’s Special Prosecution Office.
