Kosovo MP Limaj questioned by EULEX about 1999 war crimes

Fatmir Limaj, an MP and former transport minister, was questioned last night by EULEX prosecutors over war crimes allegedly committed in Kosovo during the 1999 war.

Limaj was questioned as part of an operation by EULEX officers and Kosovo police on Wednesday, in which they arrested twelve persons on suspicion of committing war crimes during the 1999 conflict. 

Limaj surrendered to EULEX after he was notified that the mission had issued an arrest warrant. After he was questioned, Limaj was released, while six persons were ordered into detention on remand for 30 days.

Limaj is also suspected by EULEX of corruption, and the mission raided the ministry of transport in April last year during his tenure as minister. The probe relates to road tenders issued between 2007 and 2009.
