Selimi dismisses advisor arrested on drug trafficking charges

Kosovo`s Minister of Justice Selim Selimi announced via social media that he has dismissed his political advisor, Enis Qerka, arrested on charges of drug trafficking.

Selimi's move follows Koha's report that one of the persons arrested at the border crossing between Kosovo and North Macedonia in December 2018 was appointed a political advisor for Selimi. Qerka and two men were apprehended transporting 113 kg of heroin.

At the time, Qerka was issued one-month detention but was released on bail a week later.
Minister Selimi wrote: "This morning, following media reports, I have released from duty Enis Qerka."
