MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF CUSTODY MEASURE FOR THREE SUSPECTS WITHIN THE OPERATION CODENAMED “CUT”09.08.2022. 14:32
The measure of extension of custody was requested due to the risk of the flight of the suspects, the risk that if they remain at large they could obstruct the investigation, conceal evidence and exert influence on witnesses or accomplices, as well as repeat the criminal offence or complete the one they have started.
The suspects are under investigation for criminal offences of organised crime, in conjunction with international smuggling and illicit trafficking in large quantities of narcotic drugs, as well as other criminal offences.
The custody measure of detention is required to ensure the unhindered continuation and completion of the investigation in this case for organised crime.
