A EULEX pre-trial judge from Prizren District Court has ordered one month’s detention on remand for a war crimes suspect. The individual is charged with two counts of war crimes against the civilian population in 1998.

The suspect, who was at large for a year, was arrested and extradited from Albania. He was part of the investigation in the case against E.K. and others whose trial took place last year in Prizren.

The case is being prosecuted by the EULEX prosecutor from Kosovo’s Special Prosecution Office.
