Detention on remand extended for Zarko Veselinovic

29 August 2013

A EULEX pre-trial judge at Mitrovica Basic Court granted the request of a EULEX prosecutor to extend for one month detention on remand for Zarko Veselinovic. The detention on remand was extended until 29 September 2013. Veselinovic is suspected of several crimes (Attempted aggravated murder, Unauthorised ownership, control, possession or use of a weapon, Unauthorised ownership, control or possession of a weapon, Aggravated theft, Obstructing official persons in performing official duties and Fraud), but the pre-trial judge found grounded suspicion only on one of the counts, unauthorized ownership, control or possession of a weapon.

The judge considered that there was sufficient risk of flight.

The prosecution and defendants have the right to appeal this decision.
