Serbia summons Albanian man to serve prison time in Nis

Serbian authorities have sent summonses to Hashim Mecinaj from the village of Klina e Eperme to report to the prison in Nis to serve the remainder of his sentence on charges of terrorism for his role as a member of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).

Mecinaj had been arrested by Serbian police forces during the conflict of Kosovo and was sentenced to 20 years in prison but was released along with other Albanians held in Serbia’s prisons four years later. Mecinaj said he does not intend to travel to Serbia and hopes Kosovo institutions will react.
