Behlul Limaj, one of the defendants in the Klecka Case, was taken ill during the court session on Thursday and sent to hospital. The trial should resume on Monday.
The trial of ten former Kosovo Liberation Army, KLA, fighters for war crimes has been suspended due to the illness of one of the indictees, Behlul Limaj, who had to be taken to hospital.
The defendant, who has a previous history of heart disease, told his lawyer Armend Krasniqi during the court session on Thursday afternoon that he did not feel well. Limaj was subsequently rushed to hospital by the Kosovo Police.
The European Judge Jonathan Welford-Carroll decided to postpone the session until Monday, while the prosecutor Maurizio Salustro requested that Behlul Limaj’s case be separated from the main process, so that the trial could continue in his absence.
