Court issues extradition warrant for Serbian man suspected of killings 23 years ago

A Budapest court on Monday issued a temporary extradition warrant for a Serbian man suspected of killing 33 Kosovo Albanians 23 years ago.

Acting on a request by a Pristina court, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Kosovo issued an international arrest warrant in September 2021, with a view to conducting criminal proceedings for war crimes committed against the civilian population in connection with the shooting of civilians in 1999, resulting in the death of 33 Kosovo Albanians.

Life imprisonment is the maximum possible sentence for the man’s suspected crime.

The Serbian has not consented to his extradition.
