Albin Kurti trial adjourned to 22 February

15 February, 2010

Today, in the District Court of Pristina, a mixed panel of EULEX and Kosovo judges decided to adjourn the trial of Mr Albin Kurti to 22 February 2010.

The reason for the postponement was to provide the defendant with a fair amount of time in order to prepare his defence, in line with the relevant provisions of the code of criminal procedure. The defendant Albin Kurti was actually only summoned on 9 February 2010.

Mr. Kurti is accused of participating in a crowd committing a criminal offence; participating in a group obstructing official persons in performing official duties and calling for resistance. These three offences were allegedly committed on the occasion of the demonstrations of 10 February 2007 in Pristina.

The Prosecution is represented by the Kosovo Special Prosecution Office (SPRK).
