Postal van hijackers sentenced to a total of 33 years

The persons charged with having hijacked a postal van carrying 7.2 million denars in Tetovo's nearby village of Mala Recica in April 2006, have been sentenced to serve a total of 33 years in prison.

The prime suspects Imer Ameti and Fljamur Neziraj have been sentenced to ten years, Kosovo's citizen Agron Raka to eight years, and Skopje's resident Sabahudin Idrizari will serve five years in prison, Makfax's correspondent reported.

The prime suspect Ameti, who is still on the run, was tried in absence, and the judge extended the temporary detention to the remaining members of the gang until their sentences go into effect.

The fifth defendant in the case was acquitted, because the prosecution failed to proof his involvement in hijacking of the postal van.
