Presure on Limaj for War Crimes accusations

A Senior EULEX official urges ex-minister Fatmir Limaj to drop his immunity and face trial, while the US ambassador says Kosovo risks confronting ‘the world’ if it does not resolve the immunity issue.

The deputy head of the EU rule-of-law mission, Andy Sparkes, said on Thursday that the former transport minister Fatmir Limaj should waive his immunity from prosecution and face trial for war crimes.

“We have a warrant arrest for Mr Limaj. He has remained free only because of this ambiguity,” Sparkes said.

The comments came as the US ambassador Christoper Dell said Kosovo was in danger of confronting “the whole world” over the issue of MPs immunity.
