Prishtina, 17 October 2013 - A mixed panel of international and local judges at the Basic court in Gjilan/Gnjilane sentenced 10 people to a combined total of 59 years and 9 months years of imprisonment for commission of terrorism and organization/participation in a terrorist group.
The panel of judges found that the defendants had set up a highly organised group that executed an armed attack on Serbian check point near Bujanovc/Bujanovac in 2012. The panel, in its reasoning, concluded that the group aimed at inciting conflict in Preshevë/Presevo valley to compel the international community to intervene.
