6 Pristina Municipal Officials Arrested for Abuse of Office

Six Municipal procurement and infrastructure officials were arrested in Pristina on Tuesday for suspected abuse of office in connection with the signing of an 800,000-euro project.

The police unit in Kosovo for economic crimes and corruption questioned the six suspects and detained them for 48 hours. This comes just one week after Pristina’s Mayor, Isa Mustafa (see earlier story from May 2nd), accused the police of pressuring municipal workers.
