Kosovo wants Salustro to testify in Limaj case

Kosovo’s ruling party backs calls by Fatmir Limaj’s lawyers for EULEX prosecutor Maurizio Salustro to be stripped of immunity and made to testify.

The ruling Democratic Party of Kosovo, PDK, said the European Union Rule of Law Mission, EULEX, should treat everyone equally before the law, including international lawyers who refuse to take the stand in the Klecka trial.

“No one is above the law”, the PDK said on Wednesday, referring to the earlier request by Fatmir Limaj’s lawyers for Maurizio Salustro to testify in his war crimes trial.

“In democratic countries, where the rule of law is a basic principle, no one can hide behind immunity,” the PDK statement added.
