Former Interior Minister Tahiri to Undergo New Trial, Appeals Court Rules

The Special Appeals Court has remanded a first degree court ruling that sentenced former Interior Minister Saimir Tahiri to 5 years in prison, reduced to 3 years and four months of probation.

This means that Tahiri will undergo a new trial by the Special First Instance Court.

The Appeals court ruling was made public on June 26, and the judicial body was made up of Dhimitër Lara, Nertina Kosova, and Albana Boksi.

On September 20, 2019, former minister Tahiri was found guilty by the Serious Crimes Court of abuse of office, while charges of collaboration with criminal gangs and drug trafficking were dropped.
