Uke Rugova – Detention on Remand:

23 June 2014

On 21 June 2014 U.R. appeared before the Pristina Basic Court and was detained on remand for a period of 30 days.
Uke Rugova was released by the Court of Appeals on 20 June 2014. The Court of Appeals ruled that U.R., at the time of his arrest on February 2014, was subject to Parliamentary Immunity from arrest.
As the Kosovo Parliament was dissolved on 7 May 2014, U.R. no longer has any Parliament Immunity. Therefore, following his release on 20 June 2014, he was rearrested on the direction of SPRK.
All parties have the right to appeal.
