A former female fighter has been summoned by the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office at The Hague which is prosecuting alleged crimes committed by the Kosovo Liberation Army, KLA, during 1998-99 war.
The Special war crimes court based at The Hague has summoned several ex-KLA commanders who confirmed that next week will be ‘interviewed’ at The Hague. Their lawyers say that it remains unknown whether they have been invited as witnesses or suspects. Among those who are summoned by the court is ex-KLA fighter, Raimonda Rreci, who in a Facebook post confirmed to have received the invitation from The Hague court. “My name has been added to the list of those invited by the Special Court in The Hague,” Rreci wrote. Over the last two weeks several key figures of the KLA, including commanders of the Drenica and Llapi region, have confirmed to have been summoned by The Hague prosecutors and confirmed that they will voluntarily appear before international prosecutors next week when they are expected to be interviewed for their role during the Kosovo war.
