26 April 2014
Yesterday, an international pre-trial judge at the Basic Court of Mitrovica extended detention on remand against O.I. for the period of two months, until 27 June 2014. He is suspected of War Crimes and incitement to Aggravated Murder.
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 O.I's arrest on 27 January 2014.
The case is prosecuted by an international prosecutor from the Special Prosecution Office of Kosovo (SPRK)
All parties have the right to appeal.
