After five years of work the Kosovo Specialist Chambers, established to prosecute, and try alleged crimes of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), prosecutors of the Hague-based court filed last week the first indictment.

Ex-KLA commander Salih Mustafa was the first person to be indicted and arrested by the Special Court. The indictment, as confirmed by the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office (SPO), charges Mustafa with arbitrary detention, cruel treatment, torture, and murder. None of the allegations made by the Swiss senator, Dick Marty, are listed among press charges against Salihu. Marty’s report published in 2011 alleging that ex-KLA members were involved in organ trafficking served as basis for establishment of the Specialist Chambers.  

Gazeta Express has asked Marty to comment the work of the Specialist Chambers. His Office said that the Swiss senator is not commenting on or giving interviews related to the work of the Specialist Chambers. “Mr. Marty asked me to inform you that he currently is not commenting on or giving interviews related to this topic,” said Francesca Mchauru, assistant to Marty’s Office. /GazetaExpress/
