Wife of French Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Serbian playwright Biljana Srbljanovic is being accused with possession of cocaine.

APA reports quoting Serbian portal that the Belgrade Court is still unable to issue official indictment because Srbljanovic gave wrong addresses to police and the court.

Spokesperson for the Belgrade Court Dusitsa Ristic said that because an indictment has not been submitted the court can not start the process. The sources told that Srbljanovic didn’t show her address because she doesn’t want to overshadow career of her husband Gabriel Keller, the former French Ambassador to Serbia and the current French Ambassador to Azerbaijan.

Srbljanovic was detained on December 1, 2011 when buying cocaine from street dealers. According to police, she bought cocaine twice paying 60 euros.

The French embassy in Azerbaijan didn’t make comment on the Serbian press reports.
