Hungary extradites Serb suspected of war crimes to Kosovo Izvor: N1

The main suspect in the killing of Albanian civilians in Kosovo’s village of Mala Krusa during the 1998-1999 war in the then Serbia’s province was extradited from Hungary to Pristina, N1 reported on Friday.

In this pretty rare extradition case related to war crimes in Kosovo, Hungary handed over the man upon request of Kosovo’s Justice Minister Abelard Tahiri. Besides, that is the first such extradition since Pristina took over from the European Civil Mission, EULEX, the war crimes cases.

Earlier, two men, one from Montenegro and the other form Bosnia and Herzegovina, were extradited to EULEX.
Drita Hajdari, Kosovo’s Special Prosecutor, told N1 the EULEX opened the case.

“We inherited it. The EULEX put him on an international warrant and that how he was arrested.”

She added the prosecution had different kinds of evidence, saying the suspect would be treated with the respect of his procedural and constitutional rights.
