Today, a pre-trial Judge of the Mitrovica Basic Court granted the application of the Kosovo Special Prosecution Office (SPRK) and extended detention on remand against D.D. for the period of two months, until 4 July 2014. The pre-trial Judge found that the risk of flight and the risk that the defendant might influence witnesses if released continued to exist and that there are no less severe measures that could be imposed at this time.

Detention on remand was initially ordered by the Mitrovica Basic Court following D.D's arrest on 4 February 2014. He is suspected of incitement to commit aggravated murder and incitement to commit attempted aggravated murder. All parties have the right to appeal.
