Serbia: Calls for former Kosovo PM to be extradited

FOCUS Information Agency: International Organization , Amnesty International had asked former Kosovo Prime Minster Agim Ceku to be extradited to Serbia, Danas newspaper informed.

The Serbian Justice Ministry sent Bulgaria a demand for Ceku’s extradition, including all necessary documentation, as well as an added clarification related to the jurisdiction of the court that approved the demand for issuing a warrant for Ceku’s arrest.

However, the court in the southwestern Bulgarian town of Kyustendil took the decision to release Agim Ceku.

“Bulgaria and Serbia are member states of the European Convention on Extradition. This requires extradition of wanted persons in both countries. There is no logic to explain refusal on extraditing a person, who is wanted for military crimes,” Amnesty International” press office said.
