A Kosovo court has placed Alexander Bulatovic into 15 days detention for suspected war crimes in Kosovo Polje in 1999 following his arrest on Monday on the border.
Kosovo police have arrested a Kosovo Serb named as Alexander Bulatovic on the Kosovo-Serbia border for war crimes allegedly committed in 1999 in Fushe-Kosovo, known as Kosovo Polje in Serbian.
The EU’s rule of law mission, EULEX, confirmed to BIRN that the suspect was presented to a court on Tuesday night, and placed in 15 days’ detention pending a court hearing.
“The suspect is wanted for war crimes committed against the civilian population in Fushe-Kosove in 1999,” the spokesperson added.
Bulatovic is wanted for the murder of Xheladin Idrizi, a Kosovo Albanian killed in April 1999 at his home. Another two Kosovo Serbs, who remain at large, are also wanted for this crime.
