Man charged in domestic violence case
29 March 2012 – A EULEX judge at the Municipal Court of Vushtrri/Vucitrn confirmed on 26 March 2012 two indictments against Marko Milenkovic.

Marko Milenkovic has been charged by a local prosecutor from the Vushtrri/Vucitrn Municipality on two counts of grievous bodily harm pursuant to article 154, paragraph (3) in conjunction with paragraph (1) item 2) of the Criminal Code of Kosovo.

29 March 2012 – A mixed panel of two EULEX judges and one local judge at the District Court of Peja/Pec on 29 March 2012 found the defendant Dervish Idrizaj guilty for the criminal offence of causing general danger. He was sentenced to five years of imprisonment.
The trial panel found Dervish Idrizaj guilty because he fired two shots at the victim in Decan/Decani, missing him and hitting the window and the door of a supermarket instead. Despite the large number of people in the vicinity, no one was hit either directly or by ricochet. The defendant was initially charged with attempted murder which was re-qualified as causing general danger.
The trial panel acquitted Isuf Idrizaj and Bedri Krasniqi of all the charges, since the evidence did not prove they had committed the criminal offences they were charged with.
