The Serbian Justice Ministry filed an extradition request with the North Macedonia authorities for Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) veteran Tomor Morina who was arrested at the Kosovo-North Macedonia border, the Srna news agency was told at the ministry.
Morina was arrested under an Interpol warrant issued by the Serbian authorities. He is under investigation by the Serbian War Crimes Prosecution.
The Serbian authorities still have to submit documentation on the case before the North Macedonian judiciary decides on the extradition. The Kosovo authorities and Albanian political parties in North Macedonia have demanded Morina’s release.
