Court of Appeal judge Shkelqim Miri, arrested a few days ago on grounds of corruption remains in prison. This decision was taken on Monday by the Serious Crimes Court of Appeal that rejected Miri’s lawyer request for house arrest on view of the fact that his client has been diagnosed with tumor.
Meantime judge Miri continues to categorically deny the charges of active and passive corruption. He also claims that the sum of ALL 30 Million that was seized in house during the arrest belong to a relative and would be used for an asset’s purchase.
Judge Miri is facing trial on grounds of corruption due to the change of a verdict for a defendant from dual murder to grave injury.
