Appeals panel rejects Thaci’s request; will remain in detention

The Court of Appeals Panel of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers has rejected the appeal presented by former Kosovo President Hashim Thaci challenging the decision of the pre-trial judge against his interim release.

Thaci has been detained at The Hague since 2020.

According to the Appeals Panel, Thaci has failed to prove why the previous decision of the judge was unreasonable concerning the risks if released.
