Regarding this case, the lawyer Naim Rudari from the Kosovo Chamber of Advocates, who represents one of the arrested, reacted.
In a Facebook post, Rudari stressed that the arrest of eight police officers shows what he calls legal uncertainty.
Rudari informs that initially some police officers were invited to the police station ostensibly for a police operation, but when they showed up at the station they were arrested.
“Legal uncertainty, on the occasion of the arrest of eight police officers! Yesterday on 05/03/2021 some police officers were invited to report to work at 06:00 in the morning ostensibly for a police operation, when they showed up at the station they were arrested as if they were in uniform ostensibly for some cases that occurred in November and December 2019. On the occasion of the fraudulent arrest of police officers, it was officially stated by the highest officials of the competent institutions that they are charged with many criminal offenses, including the criminal offense of Unauthorized Purchase, Possession, Distribution and Sale. of narcotic substances “, wrote Rudari.
Further, Rudari emphasizes that in the hearing held today, none of the police officers was charged with the criminal offense related to narcotics.
Today in the hearing on the request for detention on remand, none of the police officers was charged with the criminal offense related to narcotics and mainly police officers are now charged with the criminal offense “Ill-treatment in the exercise of official duty” to better understand the use of “force by police officers to assess whether there was an overuse of force or not, while the criminal offense of narcotics remained only at the conference,” he wrote.
Rudari also stressed that this arrest was made unfairly and without legal basis.
“We presented our remarks in court, what was the reason for that spectacle that for the suspicions of 2019 when the secret measures were used without a decision to start the investigation, to invite police officers for an operation and to arrest them. However unjust, arrest without legal basis and contrary to Article 162 of the KCCP, unreasonable, unnecessary and immoral which can not be called anything but legal uncertainty. Although unjustly arrested, they were detained and “Some of them, including one I represent, were sent to detention, further distorting justice, those who are about to do justice, without comment!”, Rudari wrote on “Facebook”. / Voice
