EU Prosecutor refused to testify in Limaj trial

After an EU prosecutor, Maurizio Salustro, refused to testify in the Klecka case, saying he had immunity as an international staffer, Fatmir Limaj’s defence asked the Chief Prosecutor to suspend the Italian lawyer from the trial.

Fatmir Limaj’s defence team yesterday demanded the suspension of EULEX prosecutor Maurizio Salustro from the Klecka Case.

They say they want to question him concerning allegations that the late key witness in the trial said that he had testified under pressure from the Italian lawyer.

During Tuesday’s session at the Pristina District Court, Salustro answered that because he had immunity as an international staffer, he would not testify in the case as Limaj’s defence lawyers had asked.
