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

APA reports quoting Serbian Telegraf.rs 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 Telegraf.rs 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.

Srbljanovic is a famous playwright. Her five plays have been translated into 20 languages and put on stage by more than 50 theaters in Europe and America. In addition, Srbljanovic is known as an active political figure. She was a member of the Political Council of the Liberal Democratic Party and in 2008 and one of the candidates for Mayor of Belgrade.
